Great views just before high tide this morning just off the cafe by the caravan park (which does great breakfasts!) Thanks to Brian Gibbs for pointing it out!
And still present off Blue Anchor this morning, per Twitter.

Surf Scoter still visible today at Blue Anchor just before high tide.
And still present this morning in Blue Anchor Bay, opposite the cafe, per Chris Gladman.
Yesterday a Bonxie had a go at it but it just kept diving out the way. The Skua settled on the sea about 20 feet away from the scoter after a while and then gave up and flew east.
It was dive bombed by a herring gull this afternoon around high tide too, on very choppy sea.
Still present today (per pager). ABout 2 hours either side of high tide is best.
Still present and quite close to the seafront at 7:40am today, but rapidly became distant as the tide fell
Surf Scoter still this morning on falling tide opposite cafe. I have seen it diving in the waves (surf) several times now at half tide.
A great find from your good self and a rather unexpected Addition to my County List last week. Thank You.
Good it stayed 11 Days for county listers and quite a few from further afield but sadly seems to have gone. Not seen since Wednesday afternoon.
