The autumn’s first Sooty Shearwater drifted elegantly south this morning, while four Arctic Skuas, a Bonxie and 249 Common Scoters and four Whimbrels were also on the move. An adult Mediterranean Gull south into the bay was also the first of the season. Yesterday’s Little Egret spent the day commuting between the Dams and East Lea, while a (the) Minke Whale was seen again around midday heading south.
