09.15-13.15

A stunning adult Great Skua flew south in the channel between The Lead Stone and The Orestone at 10.06 – the most striking I have seen.  This was followed south at 11.37 by an impressive adult light morph Pomarine Skua.  

Elsewhere, 2 Eiders (an immature male and an immature/female) were around the Leadstone for a time.

Also in the vicinity were 25 Great Northern Divers, at least 12 Purple Sandpipers, 2 Great Crested Grebes, 5 Common Scoters (4 females and 1 male), 24+ Common Gulls, 189 Gannets, 81 Kittiwakes and 53 Fulmars.
