Arctic Skua

9th October 2019 – sun and showers W5/6/7
Early morning observations (0830-0930) produced 63 Common Scoter, 5 Razorbill, 2 Red-throated Diver, 2 Kittiwake and single Arctic Skua and Red-breasted Merganser.
Grounded Migrants
Again little evidence of grounded birds just a single Goldcrest, perhaps not unsurprising considering the prevalent conditions.
A Merlin was the best of the rest.
