On a day more suited to october than august the birds decided to go back to africa and who can blame them. Swifts and house martins were in the air,wheatears whinchats and willow warblers were grounded,while gannets, terns and arctic skuas were all at sea.The sea had been quiet all morning then about lunchtime Icaught site of a gannet through the murk of the office window,venturing forth it was soon evident that 30 to 40 gannets were moving down channel in company with several terns and three arctic skuas.The skuas were giving the terns a hard time pirating their prescious catch,but not always being successful.
