Seawatch,Huttoft 14/09/2013.


So,with the light to moderate wind coming from the NE, it was to the coast for the day. I love seawatching, I’m not that good at it, but find the challenge really enjoyable. You kind of need a 40year apprenticeship. Anyway, I was pleased today with not having to let many go,(unidentified). It was a bit disappointing really, I thought it would be better, long waits between birds and not many close in, I really enjoyed it, though, with some decent birds seen in a morning session-9 til 12 and a pm session-1.30 til 3.30.;
