Stormy weather

A quick seawatch off Port Seton harbour in storm force winds (gusting to gale force, W8) produced a few skuas, only Arctic (dark ad W close in, plus 2 E overhead) and Great (W well offshore) confirmed, with one f/imm Wheatear along the beach being the only passerine in evidence. Full counts on trektellen. Stunning scenery as the waves crashed right over the harbour wall.

En route to the harbour, a couple of Swallows feeding around Seton East Farm, getting late but a long way short of last year's records into mid-November (LBN); a further Swallow over the house on Sunday morning.
