Mablethorpe Seawatch

With moderate NW's forecast for one day, myself, Tony Housman, Adrian Royle & Ian Shepherd all descended on Mablethorpe & stared at the sea for a total of 6 hours. Star bird was an adult Glaucous Gull (my earliest ever) that drifted south with Herring & Great Black-backed Gulls. Also seen were: 3 Pomarine Skua, 1 Great Skua, 14 Arctic Skua, 14 Manx Shearwater, 35+ Red-throated Diver, 191 Pinkfeet, 12 Brent Geese, 93 Common Scoter, 10 Wigeon, 22 Teal, 3 Shelduck, Peregrine, plenty of auks & Gannets, as well as good numbers of Sandwich Terns heading north with at least 5 Common Tern. A Common Snipe, 28 pipits & 3 Skylark came in off.
