Tern passage but no shearwaters

Seawatching from the yacht club from 06:30 - 08:30 on Saturday morning (joined by Adam for the last hour or so) was underwhelming to say the least given the conditions, with a big fat zero shearwaters noted. There was however a decent movement of 90+ Sandwich Terns heading south along with six Common Terns, a light phase Arctic Skua, 12 Mediterranean Gulls (three adults and nine juveniles), c.30 Kittiwakes, c.15 Fulmars and singles of Little Egret and Dunlin.
