Too cold for standing too still for too long

And guess what? We missed them! The prize of the day. A very quick watch over today's 9.9m monster tide revealed just a few Common Scoters and a very distant Auk sp whizzing its way north. Ill dressed for the cold wind we didn't stay out long and within a few minutes of retiring back behind the desk news came through of 2 (possibly more) Harbour Porpoises only a few hundred yards to the south...wooly jumper and thicker coat tomorrow!
Where to next? Back to the prom but properly dressed for the elements I think!
In the meantime what have you found in your sunny seaside? Let us know.

Not a lot. We still have our grey wagtail in the garden though.

RSPB big garden bird count next weekend...make sure you log on and record your Grey Wag...only of course if it appears during your watch time.
