I try to seawatch (28112013)

Any doubt that I was still poorly were dispelled today when I went seawatching in a good NW blow. In the first hour I missed not one but two great northern divers...

Plenty of birds going through though. Lots of gulls still around which is unusual (?). Rough totals; red-throated diver (22), black-throated diver (2), Slavonian grebe (4), red-necked grebe (1), great crested grebe (2), fulmar (2), sooty shearwater (1), gannet (40) and kittiwake (12+). Alcids piling through too in uncountable numbers and 8 waxwing past.
