Saturday 14th January 2017

Apparently this is the fellow responsible for the high tides with the predicted storm surge only coming up slightly higher than the expected height with the overnight high tide line nothing special to write home about. After pathetic numbers of Cormorants all week it was pleasing to count 940 going out fishing this morning. First-winter Glaucous Gull about again following shipping as is becoming the norm recently. Also noted southbound 6 Common Scoter & 2 Red-breasted Merganser plus northbound 6 Brent, 5 Teal & Red-throated Diver in limited effort put in as the currant bun was up and in one's eyes. A single Linnet was the highlight in the small bird department as with this cold wind it really is a bit bleak down here in recent days.
