Weather and Sky:
A further deteriorating evening with very strong winds, closing skies and approaching rain. Wind: SW F6-7 Gusting more. Temp: 18, damp wind. Visibility: 40km NW, 60km E. Cloud: see photographs. Pressure: 1016.
During the visit, what appeared to be a substantial band of frontal cloud overdrew and continued on east. Impossible to stand at the "windy corner", but snug and almost "calm" behind the wall! Not a bird seen in the sky. Gull numbers were static at 55 LBB Gull, (no BH Gulls). New in were two Ringed Plovers and a Dunlin seen briefly on the main shore but then to the back pools, out of sight and out of the wind.
