A grey Sunday in the port...........


Sunday afternoon was grey and snowy again...............


There were 4 Black-necked Grebes n one of the local ports: the summer plumaged one was still around..............


The others were dressed more conservatively.............


This male Blue Rock Thrush was also around.............


Also in the port were a few Scaup, 1 Great-crested Grebe, 1 Goldeneye, several Pochard and Tufted Duck. Further along the coast there was Goosander, Red-breasted Merganser, Harlequin Duck, Black Scoter and Whooper Swan. As I got home a White-tailed eagle was flying overhead being mobbed by gulls.............

  1. The snow here has all melted away after a couple of mild days, one with quite a bit or rain. Winter is not over yet, however, and I am sure we will have more before it's all done.
