A female-type Eider whizzes past marker buoy 5. One of two this morning. Both presumably heading towards the flock off Warren Point.

A look at the sea from 0805 - 0855, in horrible wet and windy weather, produced 120+ Gannets, 6 Great Northern Divers, 2 Eiders, 2 Common Scoters, 1 Fulmar, 4 Wigeon, 1 Great Crested Grebe and an adult Mediterranean Gull. A number of Kittiwakes and auks also passed through.
On the Imperial rugby pitch - 125 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 11 Pale-bellied Brent Geese and 17 Great Black-backed Gulls.
A quick look off the seafront yesterday revealed 6 Eider and 1 Great Crested Grebe, along with a tired-looking Guillemot and an even more knackered-looking Razorbill.

Common Sandpiper in the brook at Mudbank on Christmas day.
