An Easterly blow
For the last few days, we have had strong easterly winds, but so far I have seen none of the expected migrant birds. However, a brief 1/2 hour seawatch in the early evening from Corton Cliffs reached from just off the Baker's Score, revealed a super soot-black Black Tern struggling against the strong east winds to fly south at 6.20pm and a close Fulmar which flew north shortly afterwards.
