Tuesday 27th November
Firstly there was a Smew briefly this morning (Bobby D). Then the Gt Northern Diver was reported followed by a message to say that there were now two. I managed to wangle a couple of hours off work, so I phoned the Captain and we met up and walked round. There was a female Common Scoter (Paul Hyde) at the west end and the two divers were more or less together about half way around. It started to rain and that combined with the cold wind convinced me it was time to call it a day.
I did take my camera but the light was so poor that it proved to be a waste of time.
