The Surf Scoter remains in its favoured area in the bay this evening, just south of the seawatch hut along the southern flank of the Brigg (and viewable from the top of Carr Naze for the less energetic). Still associating with a small group of Common Scoters, the bird is feeding on Razorfish and is relatively tolerant of disturbance thus far.

A Spoonbill dropped in to the Dams early this morning, but was gone within a few minutes. Otherwise, Curlews continue to move through in good numbers.
