Scaup still in residence

6th January 2020 – overcast/rain soon S4/5
A quick check of the sea as the rain front approached produced 12 Red-throated Diver, 11 Common Scoter and single Shag and Guillemot.
Wildfowl and Waders
Five Scaup (3 females & 2 first-winter males) remain amongst 15 Goldeneye and 11 Red-breasted Merganser and waders included 3 Greenshank.
A Barn Owl hunting at dawn was the best of the rest.
