Today I spent a "casual" hour in the morning and an hour this evening hoping for a Pomarine Skua which everyone around me seems to be enjoying! Axe Birder had a great count of 9 birds off Seaton this morning and they were later seen by Not Quite Scilly in Dorset, who incidentally is on a Pom Purple Patch at the moment! The best I could muster were a s/p Great Northern Diver sat on the sea, 17 Common Scoter west, 19 Whimbrel west and 2 Sanderling on the beach (not so common here).
Frustratingly, this evening a "Skua" probably Arctic was harassing what were presumably kittiwakes way, way out to the south this evening but it was just too far to id! Maybe tomorrow.....
