Never a month to take for granted (but one that usually provides some quality with enough persistence), August here in Filey was as entertaining as I'd hoped it would be.

The sea provided more and more as August wore on. By mid-month, all four skuas, Roseate Terns and the first Sooties were in the bag, and then by the end of the month, it was a thrill to experience some of the best movements in years - Filey at its best from the hallowed hide on the Brigg. Skuas and Shearwaters in their multitudes; it doesn't get much better.

Of last August? California and Australia (see next post). Could be worse....
