Hope's Nose

Although not seen initially this morning, the new first summer male Eider eventually revealed itself on the southern slope of the Lead Stone.  Its camouflage was incredible against the rock - top pick up by Nose regular Pete, as it raised its head!

The summer plumaged Great Northern Diver was still northeast of the Point.  5 full adult Med Gulls was a good total for the site, with one lingering on the sea for ten minutes, off the wave-cut platform.  

30 Manx Shearwaters and 5 Sandwich Terns were also seen.
