5 female Common Scoter at Downend this morning on my way to Croyde. None at Baggy point & on the way home checked at Downend again & they had gone.

Someone I know mentioned that in the recent severe gales & heavy surf the mussels had been torn from the rocks so if there is no food for them at Downend they will search elsewhere.
