The steady build-up in activity over the sea reached a season’s-peak-so-far today – a total of 12 hours watching resulted in especially high counts of 805 Manx Shearwaters (the biggest tally since 2008), 329 Oystercatchers and 264 Whimbrel (both recent day records) amongst a good cast of species. See Trektellen for full counts.
