The Iceland Gull seems to have left the harbour, but Snow Buntings (two or three) are still being seen regularly on the western arm of the outer marina. With nothing better to do, I took a walk this morning and, after a bit of searching, had two birds scratching about on the footpath within a few yards of where I was standing. Quite flighty, they were flushed by a jogger and departed in the direction of the Harbour Lights Cafe. Two Kingfishers and a Shag kept me amused as I scanned, in vain, for C-R gulls.
Making my way back, I stumbled upon a rather confiding Rock Pipit feeding along the seawall. So year tick number two for the morning. Well pleased with my efforts I returned home and got ready for my afternoon shift in better humour than a normal Monday!
