Skuas in the Mist 6/5/13

Well, a 14 hour seawatch at Splash Point of what half of this time was spent looking at nothing as the fog rolled in (and eventually back out again) limiting the visibility to 50 metres actually produced some results towards the end of the day.
It was tough going and as I am now in a 'ok' position to take the Splash Pom King for my third year, I will spend all the time I can down there, especially when my Pom rivals are just over my shoulder!!! But also it is always a good laugh with the likes of Ewan and Bob around.
Anyway, the fog rolled in at 06.45 and rolled back out at 14.00 in which time very little was recorded.

Totals are 04.30-18.30:

Pomarine Skua - 7 all l/p (2@ 15:39; singles at 16:43, 16:51, 17:27, 17:38, 18:12.)
Arctic Skua - 5
Great Skua - 1
Black Tern - 5 - all within the first hour
Little Tern - 6
Common Tern - 793
Commic Tern - 548

Grey Plover - 2
Sanderling - 5
