A moulting male eider has been around the river mouth for a few days, but has been difficult to view because of the contractors, but today it was swimming close along the shore. A long way offshore were a 100+ common scoter and a few fishing gannets. A summer plumage spotted redshank flew over the beach reserve. Last night the adult roseate tern roosted at the quarry.
