picking up...a bit

A good south westerly blow this morning produced better seawatching, although it was still fairly slow, with 3 great shearwaters, 1 balearic shearwater, 13 sooty shearwaters, 15 common scoter and several storm petrels between 6.00 and 9.30 am.  A common sandpiper was at Long Strand this morning. Another hour seawatching this evening netted 5 more sooty shearwaters and 1 arctic skua.
