If anything its probably tidal, with more foraging at full tide, but in truth I'm not sure there is an exact pattern. It's probably as significant that it won't go on the slipway when RNLI people are working on it, and who knows what their routine is.Travel restrictions and work meetings have finally aligned and I will be heading over on Wednesday, assuming it is around tomorrow.
Does it haul out every day or is there any kind of behavioural pattern? It seems to be foraging in the mornings, but the messages on Birdguides suggest it is "off the slipway" much more than it is on it.
Go when you can, stay as long as you feel like, and you won't go away disappointed no matter what it does, it's amazing.
