Report from Roger Lane. (Wed. 16th Dec 2009)

" Too cold for butterflies, but the Bay was delightfully smooth, despite which the Bay was rather empty for mid-Dec. Porthpean was quite reasonable, relatively speaking, spent an afternoon hour there. Results as follows:
Porthpean 2.30 to 3.30pm, flat calm, half tide: 4+, Guillemots; 7+, Comm.Scoter; 5+, GNDivers and 1 x BTDiver. At 3.15pm a flock of 6 more B.T.Divers surfaced for preening, dived, and were never seen again ! Main interest however, was a pair (male + female) of Grey Seals. Markings showed them to be the P'pean to Black Head resident pair. At Par there was very little ! Par Bay held 6+ of the full GCGrebe complement, and 1 x GNDiver."

Thanks for the report Roger.
Still off the road at the moment but hopefully back on Saturday.
