Report from Roger Lane. (28th Dec 2009)

"Visited Par at 3pm to 4pm (Mon.28thDec'09) after a fruitless day elsewhere due to the SE wind. Not much hope, being high-tide and littered with people, no room to stop at the Pool even, but a gap up at the western car-park enabled me to see the same old 6 x GCGrebes, but also in the Par River mouth amongst scores of B.H.Gulls was: 1 x MED.Gull, a 1st-winter half hidden by the waves, so not immediately obvious.
Back to the Pool about 3.45pm, room to park then, but failing light. 'Scoped the pool for duck or whatever and saw something diving close in 'under' the island, only the small white wing patches and rapidity of diving gave it away as 1 x GOLDENEYE (female). Once annual and common at Par, not so now."

Thanks for the report Roger.
The Goldeneye is another one for the latest sightings list.
