I walked towards Danes Dyke and watched seven Fulmars doing their usual circling and noisy cackling around their future nest sites. A trio of Stock Doves were also guarding a couple of caves on the top of the cliff.
A different sound called my attention: gannets! I had never seen Gannets from South Landing, but peering through the thick fog I could make their shapes, diving in drifts into water that appeared to be bubbling. Rafts of Guillemots and Razorbills were also feeding with the Gannets. Some Herring gulls watched attentively. There appeared to be a large school of fish near the shore. It appeared to be moving quickly as the auks flew ahead to follow the fish. The fog lifted somewhat and I could take some very poor shots of the action.
To top the visit, a pair of Red-throated Divers spent some time preening just offshore.
