No big riot

Quiet again this morning, 06:20 - 08:05. Another single Sooty Shearwater tried desperately to shear north in no wind, and a single Manx Shearwater. Skuas tried to compensate with 5 Great Skuas north and 2 south, 5 Arctic Skuas south and one distant unidentified one that looked like it could be a Pom. The passage of terns continued (88 Sandwich Terns south), 28 Arctic Terns (and 8 north), 4 Common Terns south. Only 3 Red-throated Divers south, and 1 north, beaten into touch by a patch year-tick Great Northern Diver (Common Loon), that even landed on the sea, to hollers of delight from me. 4 Common Scoters S, 510 Northern Gannets N and 99 S.

Harbour Porpoise and unidentifeid dolphin again.

Sorry, must fly...
