Wet and subdued Chough

Taken today in second field - thanks Janet

Iceland Gull - 3rd W in SW corner of harbour - on roof around lunchtime
Shag - juv wandering about harbour/wooden jetty area
Velvet Scoter - awkward - took a long time to come from the inner bay cp yesterday and seen late morning looking north from Knowlys Road.  Suggest people looking tomorrow wait until lunchtime as the neap tides slow everything down
Canada Goose - the top record of the day!  Five south past the wooden jetty at 0910 (IOY?)

No obvious passerine vis or grounded landbirds and no sign of either of the wintering female Stonechats - moved on with passage birds?
