Round Two - Filey seawatch, 13th Nov 2017

juvenile Glaucous Gull

Another day, another highly enjoyable seawatch on the Brigg, with a moderate NW and early wintry showers calming and clearing later. Again, no great numbers and nothing rare, but a good selection of classic late autumn species and a pleasure to be there for four hours with barely another sign of humanity....

Common Scoters over the Brigg

Trek count - see here for the site

Grey Heron

Red-breasted Merganser

Black-throated Diver

Sparrowhawk - I watched this bird coming in off high from the north-east before circling the Brigg, getting harassed by gulls and then leaving back over the sea, SE towards Flamborough
