After days of flat calm seas it was inevitable that a westerly wind would stike up. It did and gave us a heavily chopped sea making it almost impossible to spot any Harbour Porpoises (one on the South-Side yesterday...grrr) that may be cruising around.
Ten Common Scoters were bobbing along close in and a couple of Cormorants flew by. Lots of blobs of 'intersting looking' ( for a second or two but no more) seaweed.
No cloud cover made looking at the glistening sea for lengthy periods quite hard, add to that a good bit of heat haze and basically we were up the proverbial creek.A steady procession of nothing went by for most of the afternooon.
For the last hour the choppy seas subsided as the tide ebbed and bit of cloud cover made viewing a lot more comfortable and we soon found a distant Grey Seal...so distant it was almost on the South-side.
Just before our four hours were up we watched a spectacular display of diving from a height by a Sandwich Tern.
Where to next? More NWDW tomorrow - will we get a cetacean or not at our town centre watch point?
In the meantime let us know what the lifting haze revealed in your outback
