Monday 5 December 2016

The highlight today was the discovery by Mick Francis of a drake Long-tailed Duck at Burton Riggs early this morning. Another surprise today was a Puffin seen in North Bay by Steve Race where there were also 2 Red-throated Divers.

The usual culprits were still in the harbour today.

On the rocks below the skate park there was a Shag with a green darvic ring on the right leg with the letters FCZ on it. If I find out the origin of this bird it will be on this site at a later date.

At Seamer tip in New Dike there were a Water Rail and a Little Egret

Finally a bit of mammal news today, there was a Grey Seal on the rocks opposite the skate park.
