Perseverance wrings out the last of the decent storm driven birds

Winds still strong from west early on, but easing quickly. Staggered seawath till 12:00 (PM, SC) managed to locate.
Arctic Tern - 5-7 out in loose gang with some backtracking
Little Tern - one out
Sandwich Tern - two out
Gannet - one out
Manx Shearwater - 2 out
Med gull - 2 x 2cy early on by wooden Jetty

Rock pipits - the two adult near lighthouse are feeding young on nest much more frequently now.
