Huge sea at Kettleness this a.m. The wind stayed resolutely SW and there was a distinct lack of Little Auks - or anything very much. A Whooper Swan swam regally offshore and a R-bM put in a brief appearance. Most notable was the Starling flock which has swelled to c1,500 and a Peregrine was hunting. A few redwing both here and at home but a rather uneventful day - nice pint and f&cs later though.
