Strumble Head 4th July.

Time: 11.00 - 15.30
Weather: Bright
Wind: SW 3/4

Common Scoter - 34 ( 25 Males )
Curlew - 2
Puffin - 15

Higher than usual number of Fulmar today, probably numbering between 80 - 100. A few of the local pristine juvs close in like we see every year but mostly adults looking to have some sign of moult on the upperwing. Failed or finished Northern birds possibly or non - breeders moving back already ?

A party of 5 Chough were present around the lookout for a short time.

Porpoises infrequent today although the few that were seen showed quite well.
