Rock-a-Nore update

Yesterday I reported on various seabirds past the harbour, including a Shag on the main arm. We were there again late afternoon, doing a spot of beachcombing , and almost walked past an incredibly tame Purple Sandpiper roosting on the edge of the arm at the landward end. It allowed us to admire it from just 2m away. This was particularly pleasing as I didn’t record any here last winter.

[Observant readers of this will see that this bird is on a sea defence boulder, not the concrete harbour arm; we had no camera and this is an old picture from Glyne Gap]
