The sea crossings didn't produce much out of the ordinary, the highlights being a flock of 25+ Commic Terns, numerous Manx Shearwaters and small numbers of Razorbill, Guillemot, Fulmar and Gannet.
Grounded migrants in the difficult conditions included:
3 Spot Fly
4 Sedge Warbler
6+ Willow Warbler
4 Common Whitethroat
Plus Swallow and House Martin, a single Sand Martin and Common Swift heading north.
On the 7th May Russ and I came across a nesting pair of Great Black-backed Gulls on the roof of Topp Tiles, Liverton Business Park. Unusual to see this species nesting on buildings and even more unusual when it is at least 2Km from the coast!
