Great Northern Diver!

2 hrs sea watching this morning at the boats 08.00-10.00 was somewhat unproductive, but with the strong winds and rain it was the only viable option.
Common Scoter: 17W
Great-crested Grebe: 29 around
Gannet: 272W
Cormorant:76 around
Turnstone: 4 on beach
Kittiwake: 3W
Guillemot: 1 on sea
Auk sp: 19W
Goldfinch: 35W
Linnet: 24W
An hour or so chatting in the comfort of VC where an adult Caspian Gull came in to bathe, a Goosander swam by and 10 Knot flew through.
Back on the beach this afternoon a 3w Caspian Gull was in the roost. The sea was still very quiet but a Great Northern Diver flying west was a nice surprise.
