Seven weeks and counting - Filey's wintering Surf Scoter


The boy's looking a bit smarter as time passes, and with the wind dropping somewhat this afternoon, I parked out on the Brigg boulders and spent some time with various sheltering seabirds; after a couple of hours, he came a little closer for a while, and allowed for a few distant, heavily-cropped but not-quite-as-crap portraits in the evening sunshine.
