It Might Just Be A Bit Good Tomorrow
Belt of rain over the north east coast tonight with a strengthening south east wind. Bit of a funny seawatch tonight with Stef Mcelwee, didn't know what to expect, a few Great Skua (five) moving north and one or two Manx Shearwater (sports GTI) moving extremely rapidly with the tailwind, two Arctic Skua with three Redwing in off being the only other noteworthy avian encounter. We spent most of our time bemoaning the move away from landfill and speculating on the possibility of the RSPB introducing landfill reserves to feed starving gull flocks. So if your reading Mark, we think conserving key feeding habitat for large white headed gulls should be high on your conservation priority.
