Hardly brimming with reports today but there were a couple of morsels of interest in the form of singles of Pomarine Skua and Little Gull lingering for a while off the Bill; 6 Common Scoter also passed by there, singles of Barn Owl and Short-eared Owl were at Southwell and one of the Black-throated Divers was still about in Portland Harbour.
