Rock-a-Nore seabirds

A reminder of winter at present, with a walk to Hastings abandoned due to  heavily falling [but not settling]  snow yesterday, and treacherous ice on the road past the Country Park this morning.

A better variety of seabirds this morning, with a steady movement of Kittiwakes , 57 W in one hour from dawn, also a dozen auks including 1 Razorbill, 2 Red Throated Divers, 9 Shelducks, a Brent Goose,  and 2 Gannets.

An immature Shag on the harbour arm was noteworthy;

Rock-a-Nore

only my 4th here in 5 years. Cormorants rarely perch on the arm, so its always worth checking out an apparent Cormorant.
