Common Scoters - Downend

Now 32 Common Scoters (all females) at Downend. No sign

of the female Surf Scoter for the past 3 days.

Atlantic Grey Seal with a large Conger eel (over a metre long)

in it's jaws being mobbed by Herring Gulls.

No sign of any Scoters at Baggy but 1 Great Northern Diver still in summer plumage - possibly the same one that was at Downend previously.
