After the ‘beast from the north’

Record shot of a few Sandwich Tern – new for the year

After the Baltic conditions of the past few days sea-watching this morning, with starting temperatures of just 2 degrees and no wind, felt positively mild. Lots of Red-throated Diver moving – maximum count of 59, reasonable numbers of Common Scoter and a few auks kept the interest. Best birds were the handful of newly arriving Sandwich Tern – first of the year.

One of nearly 60 Red-throated Diver this morning – in typical ‘head up’ posture
