Also forgot to mention two mammals from yesterday evening.A Weasel was on the north bank beside the South Pier and a Fox was on Abbey Road,as I made my way home.
Fabulous list!Pomarine Skuas, Long-tailed Skua, Balearic Shearwater, Great Skuas, Arctic Skuas,Sooty Shearwaters, Puffin, Fulmars, Common Scoters, Red-throated Divers, Arctic Tern, Manx Shearwaters
Thanks! Pretty much everything is seen and IDed with a scope, often at high zoom (50-60x) if they're further away. I would say most of those birds were between 800 and 1500 metres out. You can certainly see a fair amount with binoculars but it can be hard to ID anything except the obvious things like Gannet.Fabulous list!
Can they be seen/recognised with the naked eye or do you need bins/long lens?
We hope we have a bat sleeping in the bat box in our birch tree but haven't seen it in a while.
