Comments: Highlight was a partially leucistic or progressively greying winter-plumaged Red-throated Diver which flew South at 0854 hrs. - white scapulars, much white in mantle and white blotches in wing-coverts. Thousands of Guillemots & Razorbills pouring South, with few going North. A steady trickle of Gannets, all adults, each way.
