As hoped for today something a little out of the ordinary did drop in on the back of the minus temperatures in the shape of a wonderful adult male Goosander; briefly in Longis Bay close to fort Razz then much better views (if only in flight) of the bird passing across Corblets Bay. This is only the 3rd record of this species here. Also today the single Dunlin located yesterday now has 7 identical pals! 2 Whimbrels were together along the NE coast along with 2 Mediterranean Gulls. Photo (JH) Todays 2 Whimbrels.
