Otters oter

Northern Gannet havsule

Highlight today was a family party of four otters oter which I just about managed to take a few pictures of.

Birdwise it was fairly quiet with the best bird being a Sooty Shearwater grålire heading north, there were a few other species of interest including a Shelduck gravand, a Great Skua storjo, the first few Red-throated Diver smålom of the autumn and waders including a couple of Turnstone steinvender and a Bar-tailed Godwit lappspove.
A Kestrel tårnfalk was also the first of the autumn.
Seawatching from Svellingen produced another Sooty Shearwater grålire later in the day, a Little Gull dvergmåke, 3-4 Arctic Skua tyvjo, a couple of Great Northern Divers islom and at least 60 "commic" tern.
