Sea Stuff

Great Northern Diver - good numbers this morning but none much closer than this one!
An 80 minute sea-watch from the raised beach huts, from 0735, produced 13 Great Northern Diver, 2 Red-throated Diver, 3 diver sp, c20/30+ Common Scoter, c50+ Gannet, c100+ Kittiwake, 14 auk sp, 3 Razorbill, 1 Great Skua (@0820) and 1 wader sp. All birds moving south apart from the Common Scoter, which were sat in small groups between Maer Rocks and Orcombe Point.

At least 11, probably 12 Purple Sandpipers on Maer Rocks mid-afternoon.
