Common Scoter

The drake Common Scoter continues to languish just off the beach this evening, between Maer Rocks and Orcombe Point. It's lovely to watch this species close-up.
Yesterday morning I had a quick look at the sea before work and logged as many as 6 Great Northern Diver (although I'm not convinced a couple weren't doing laps of the bay), 1 Red-throated Diver, the male Common Scoter, female Eider, 5 Manx Shearwater and a flock of c30+ Bar-tailed Godwit.
On the evening of the 24th - off Mudbank - c35 Sandwich Tern, 19+ Black-headed Gull, 5 Whimbrel and 5 Bar-tailed Godwit. Just a single Wheatear on Orcombe Point.
