A strong SW wind, some showers but largely dry with some sunny spells by the afternoon and evening.
Common Scoter 4 out, close in.
'Resident' Shag on wooden jetty.
Mediterranean Gull 10 adults/3cy and 8 x 1cy.
I had a look on the ebbing tide in the afternoon (MD)
Common Tern 2 juvenile - they flew east together out from the sea wall, they didn't go to the, otherwise busy, No.2 outflow presumably continued towards the estuary. Photography not easy as looking into the light, these were about my best efforts.
|Terrible shots, but they were quite distant and didn't hang around|
There was a juvenile Mediterranean gull on No.2 outflow and a Rock Pipit along the sea wall, and that's about it.
Great Crested Grebe 2
Eider c20 in a distant raft of mainly juvenile
Little Egret 7
Only waders seen were Oystercatcher, Curlew, Redshank and Turnstone
