Broadands & Haldon

A run out to Broadsands with Keith Male this morning initially to Broadsands joining the growing numbers of birders looking for the reported Pacific Diver that did not show ( or at least not while we were there), two distant Divers were deemed to be Red Throated Divers, two Black Necked Grebe showed well, a solitary Common Scoter, Fulmer, and very distant Razorbills and Guillemots were all added to the days list.
