Seaton Area

Seawatch this morning from the seafront - an hour from 08:10...

34 Red-throated divers, 16 Fulmars, 9 Brents, 6 Gannets, 24 auk sp, 25 Kittiwakes - all W
At least 35 Common Scoter and 8 Velvets still in the bay. These were the flock sizes that got up and had a fly-round - there were a few more ducks out there, but too distant and rough to be sure of ID.

Male Black Redstart at Seaton Hole still, plus 7 adult Meds and 4 intermedius type Lesser Black-backs (out of a dozen or so LBBG) on the estuary up to dusk.
