It is turning into one of those quiet autumns for seabirds. I haven’t had a sooty shearwater yet, no autumn little gulls and generally evening sea watches from Crail are fairly uneventful. There were more kittiwakes today, but even the strong winds of the last few days haven’t changed things at all. And still no juvenile gannets, which definitely makes this quite a late year for them. The red-throated divers are at least reliable, with a steady stream coming into the Forth for the last two weeks in ones and twos every so often.

  1. Had a small number of juvenile Gannets passing on Monday. Definite increase on the single bird seen a week and a half ago but still single figures during a 5 hour seawatch.
