A diver , possibly a Red -throated, seen flying very high in from the east over Five Bells on 26th November. It turned north and headed towards the Bristol Channel

The first real movement this winter of Red-throated Divers off Hurlstone this morning. A total of 82 back to the west on the falling tide, the majority of these drifted back in groups of up to five. Also eight Common Scoter and just four Guillemots - auks have been in short supply as well so far.
At least five Harbour Porpoises off here as well.
