The predicted ' biggest storm since 1987 (hurricane year)' never happened as far as we were concerned. We had some heavy showers and strong winds but nothing untoward.
About lunchtime, we drove to Walcott to have a look at the sea. Many Gannets, hundreds of gulls flying about and on the sea, a few Turnstones on the sea wall. Interesting was a flock of 40 Pinks in a field along the front, not an usual sight there.
I had a look at the Isles of Scilly, Porthcressa webcam - the one from the Wheelhouse - the sea didn't look at all big. Shame I couldn't distinguish the Sabine's Gull reported on the pager.
