Although the wind had dropped overnight, I decided to go for another seawatch off Formby Point anyway today, from 11.15am to 3pm.
There were still a few birds offshore, and later in the day, Sandwich Tern numbers began to build up, but compared to yesterday it was decidedly quiet.
Best bird was probably a single Bonxie, which spent some time resting on the sea close in, before flying off towards Wirral looking for something to pull the wings off of.
It had a few gos at Lesser Black Backs before it disappeared to the left.
Red Throated Diver 3

Good views of the vast strung out scoter flock today - frequently flushed by passing dinghies, but no sign of any white wing panels on 'em yet....
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
