Orcombe Point - 4 golden plover, 1 redpoll, 12 skylark and short-eared owl high east at 1707.

Mudbank - yesterday female-type scaup still.

SEO causing a slight headache as only viewed from below. First thought was SEO but photo seems to show lack of black primary tips, more suggestive of LEO. Hand however appears narrow and quite pointed and pale-looking primary tips could just be an artefact of the light?? Would happily be proved wrong though and would welcome any comments.

Edit - many thanks to Mike for using some software to confirm a lack of streaking on the belly - just a SEO!
