After taking folks out for a bird walk this afternoon, as part of the Torry Eco-museum project, I had quite an interesting seawatch. The conditions weren't very obviously good, with a brisk southwesterly, but 13 Little Auks passed by. Most were fairly distant but a few were closer. It was also quite startling to see three different Woodcock flying over the sea. I'd imagine they must have been flying since early last night. Other birds included a Little Gull, a Long-tailed Duck, two Common Scoter and nine Red-throated Divers. At least three Harbour Porpoises were also around.
