      Broadway groyne, Morecambe
      1 Purple Sandpiper – roosting with 137 Turnstone at high tide
      1 female Scaup – relatively close inshore
      4 female Common Scoter – a distant group of 3 and 1 on its own closer inshore

      Teal Bay
      14 female Common Scoter – loafing on flat, grey sea with 240 Eider, distantly off Hest Bank. I cannot recall this number of Common Scoter off the Morecambe – Teal Bay area in late November during the previous 30 years.
      1 female Scaup – flew into land close inshore behind Teal Bay groyne. Presumably the bird seen earlier off Broadway.

      Also: 12 Great Crested Grebe offshore between Broadway and Teal Bay.
      c.200 Pink-footed Geese north in 4 skeins
