Morecambe Seal
October 30, 2019 08:45PM
Walked home from Tai Chi along the Prom this morning between 11 and 11.45 a.m. on rising tide.

Biggest surprise was a large seal off Bare, quite close in, struggling with a large brown-backed, white bellied, flat fish. Passer by said there were two seals but watching for sometime we only saw the one fighting the fish. Think they may have been confused thinking there were two animals there.

216 oystercatcher 6 herring gulls
184 redshank 3 great black-backed gulls
62 dunlin 30 black-headed gulls
46 ringed plover 1 cormorant
53 turnstone 6 great crested grebes
11 curlew 6 red breasted mergansers (red-heads)
1 knot
33 starlings 2 pied wagtails

Latest disturbance factor to Bare seafront today - a drone being flown up and down the beach, setting up the waders. Bad enough that some people take their dogs out on the beach in winter time, now a drone.
