I had spotted TB seawatching from the dunes, he had briefly seen one of the big divers, so I went for a look. We soon re-located it, north of where it had been - it proved to be a great-northern, in non-breeding plumage, but still nice nonetheless, that's all three of the common divers this month, I reckon August is a good month for seeing the bigger divers in the bay. There was also two red-throats on the bay, one still very much breeeding in nick. This is the first time I've managed to digi-scope a bird on the sea - crap I know, but hey......
An hours seawatching also produced 5 manxies, a pale phase arctic skua, close in, 3 red-breasted mergansers and not much else! None of the goodies seen further south today!

A bit of change on the waders scene, 3 juv ruff, 1 juv spotshank and a black-tailed godwit...oh and a handful of snipe. Offshore there was a very smart drake velvet scoter, the first one i've seen in donks.
Is That me?
