Single red-throated diver off the Jetty at 12.20pm plus the attendant GC grebes, RB mergansers, peregrine, etc.

You obviously have some sort of magnet in your pocket, Jon. We were there from 11.15 to 11.50 this morning and then frozen out. We got the merganser (it flew out from the Lifeboat dirction, round the Jetty and landed in the Bay west of the jetty)and the grebes, shelduck and usual waders - but no diver and no eider (which is what I really wanted). We even went equipped with cameras just in case.

Well, Jeff, I too had my camera today but rather typically the diver was at least 80 metres off the Jetty when I was there. Incidentally there were around 6 merganser in all.

Thanks go to Pete Crooks for today's header photo of Aldcliffe. If you have a suitable picture of a local birding spot, why not send it to the webmaster, at andymccafferty@gmail.com? I need to resize (and if necessary crop) pictures to make them 600x130 pixels, so ideally send it at that size (definitely not smaller).
