Had a long day seawatching at St Marys today, good conditions but a lack of birds. Highlights were 2 Long-tailed Skuas, probably 3 more.

Grey Plover,
Arctic Skuas,
Great Skua,
Velvet Scoter
Common Scoter,
Manx Shearwater

All passed in variable numbers, but passage dried up around midday. Plenty of good conversation with many fellow birders during the course of the day, but got quite cold by days end, still no Corys for moi :(
