Another very grey and very dull morning....and it  remained so all day!
 ...but it was good to see the seal back in the harbour.
A bit of a distant shot of the Seal...but unmistakable

As there was no wind, sea watching was quite productive as the sea was smooth as a millpond with Great Crested and Slavonian Grebes, Red and Black Throated Divers, Scoters, Eiders and, in the harbour, the Goosanders had increased to five.

The now regular Merlin showed well on the shingle bank for a while  before making off northwards over the bungalows.
A Chiffchaff showed up briefly in the garden buddleia.

Revetment News
