    Offshore winds here usually means that the sea is pretty calm and an ideal opportunity to look for scoter flocks, divers and grebes. The scoter flock mainly seems to be far offshore at the moment and only giving distant views in flight but the divers and grebes are thankfully much closer.

    Black throated diver - 1 offshore

    Slavonian grebe - 2 offshore

    Long tailed duck - 2 offshore

    Spotted redshank - 2 on fresh marsh
