Comments: An interesting lark flew in off the sea at 1004 hrs. Skylark size or larger, with equally long tail, but I could not detect a whitish trailing edge to the wing, or white tail sides, despite reasonably views. Crested Lark seemed a possibility. A search of the lighhouse grassland afterwards didn't produce anything unusual. The Pomarine Skua was almost certainly the same bird as yesterday, when, at greater distance and in dull light, it had appeared to be a dark morph.
