Despite some pretty awful weather there were obviously a few people out looking this morning. A nice discovery today was an immature Great Northern Diver which showed well in the main harbour and particularly well to Steve Race’s camera. Also in the harbour was a Red-throated Diver, 2 Guillemots and the, now expected, Black-necked Grebe.
Waxwings were still posing well for photographers along North Leas Avenue where 38 were counted in the morning, also 12 were seen briefly opposite Tescos on Burniston Road but these could have been a splinter group from the North Leas group and finally 9 were seen in The Crescent at 13.00.
Seawatching at Long Nab today was fairly quiet but a few nice birds were seen including 26 Red-throated Diver, 4 Black-throated Diver, 2 Great Skuas and a Little Auk.
