Great views this morning of an adult drake and a female Eider as they sat on the sea and drifted towards Torre Abbey Sands for thirty minutes.  Both flew off strongly towards the NE at c10.55 and were not relocated over the next hour or so.

Also in the area were 3 Great Northern Divers, 3 Great Crested Grebes, 2 Little Egrets and a Grey Heron.

6 Purple Sandpipers were on nearby Haldon Pier and 3 Turnstones were around the Inner Harbour.
