Offshore I had three Atlantic Grey Seals, 34 Common Scoters, two Gannets, five Sandwich Terns and a Cormorant. There was evidence of breeding activity all around with Meadow Pipits and Blackbirds carrying food, and Ringed Plovers alarm calling with presumably small chicks.

At high tide in the afternoon there were just twelve Sanderlings roosting and it made me think that it won't be long before the first failed breeders are back. Autumn's just around the corner!
