Some Late Seabird Passage Point Lynas 27/11/12

With all the rough weather we've had recently, I decided to give Point Lynas a try this morning. The wind was a strong Northerly force 7. This doesn't make for very comfortable conditions, but I found a little sheltered nook. The results were rewarding, even if I couldn't feel my feet by the end! From 08.00 to 10.30 hrs birds passing:
90 Red Throated Diver( incl. a flock of 17), 4 Great Northern Diver, 180 Common Scoter, 1 Eider, 4 Goldeneye, 1 Red Breasted Merganser, 13 Wigeon, 1 Teal, 1 Fulmar, 2 Black Guillemot, 300 Kittiwakes, 20 Gannet, 1400 Auk sp. 4 Purple Sandpiper, 30 G.B.B. Gull
So some good diver and duck passage, I was hoping for a late skua or shearwater, but there's time yet!
