Another new bird for the patch

Hit the beach at 0720 decided to do some seawatching after the rain had stopped, really slow going then at 0805 picked up on a small falcon coming in off. quickly dismmissed Hobby because of the sandy colouration on the bird and the rounded wings. Then thought of Red-Footed Falcon. Watched as bird hit the coast, and Bird lost to view as it flew over my head and went to grab bins. Also 17W 9E Gannet, 5E Commic Tern, 10W Whimbrel, 2W Fulmar, 3 Great Skua, 3 Great C Grebe, 20 Sanderling and 5 Dunlin.
