A duck day at Kettleness with 370 Common Scoter west in 4 hours from 6 this morning (3 anarchic ones went east). Also 2 Pintail (one using subterfuge by flying with a female Mallard); 1 Wigeon; 2 Eider and 35 Teal. The other main feature was 95 Manx Shearwater going east (with 13 west later in the morning). Interestingly a Common Scoter is in West Yorkshire this morning and there are large movements of Manx on the west coasts.
Other birds of interest 3 Arctic Skua; 26 Arctic Terns; at least 11 Whimbrel; a Peregrine (but no pesky pigeon) and a juvenile Whinchat.
