16th August

A day to forget, with the rain that rolled in as promised by mid-morning still not having cleared through by dusk. The sea was well-watched for as long as it was visible(!) but there were few rewards at the Bill beyond c200 Manx Shearwaters, 3 Balearic Shearwaters and an Arctic Skua. Odds and ends from what little other fieldwork was possible included a Tree Pipit at the Bill and 2 Little Gulls at Ferrybridge.
