White-billed Diver gulnebblom
White-tailed Eagle havørn with Garfish hornhjel
Migrating Tufted Ducks toppand
Oystercatchers tjeld

Did a short and late seawatch - highlights were three White-billed Diver gulnebblom heading north, 79 Red-throated Diver smålom and a flock of 19 Whimbrel småspove.

A shoal of garfish hornhjel attracted a flock of gulls and an immature White-tailed Eagle havørn which managed to snatch one.

The only other birds of interest were a pair of Twite bergirisk - a species rapidly vanishing from the coast.
