The Surf Scoter showed again in the flock of over 200 Common Scoter and now 3 Velvet Scoter too. The flock was disturbed several times by small boats but did regularly come back to feed either just east of Crabrock Point or more regularly just south of the point so not viewable at all from Mansands beach.

Its a bit of a slog climbing the hill between Mansands and Scabbacombe beach to get the best views of the scoter flock.
