Sandilands & Sea View

Managed a 2 hour seawatch today in blustery NNW's (admittedly not at the best time of the day - 11.50 to 13.50).
Highlight was undoubtedly the party of 5 Long-tailed Skuas that drifted reasonably high south over the sea. Best of the rest were 4 Arctic Skua, 2 summer plumaged Red-throated Diver, a Purple Sandpiper N (my 2nd in 3 days) & 68 Common Scoter, A good selection of waders heading north though - Golden Plover, Grey Plover, Curlew, Knot, Bar-tailed Godwit, Oystercatcher, Dunlin & Sanderling all went through.
After the seawatch I dropped in at Sea View where the best bird was a Pied Flycatcher, with 3 Lesser Whitethroats & 6 Willow Warblers also seen.
