Filey, 11th Dec 2018
We arrived back from a great week in Berlin last night, and with a frosty, bright morning and a couple of hours spare, I took the scenic route to the Brigg this morning along the beach and via the bay corner. No sign of the long-staying Black Guillemot (although it could well still be around), but plenty going on - Long-tailed Duck (pictured) and two Great Northern Divers pretty close along the south side of the Brigg, lots of Fulmars suddenly loafing offshore (with many auks also kicking around), Common Scoter, Eider, Goldeneye and Merganser in the bay and the male and female Snow Bunting (pictured) still on Carr Naze. Good to be back.
