An inquisitive seal

After a few hours of quartet rehearsal we all decided to have a walk at the beach. Obviously I took my camera and birdwatching gear, and was pleased that I had, as there were still a pair of red-breasted mergansers in the harbour channel, and also a single common scoter.

There were plenty of little grebes in the outer harbour and a single inquisitive seal.


Before heading home to continue our rehearsals I also saw the usual selection of waders including black-tailed godwit, curlew, grey plover, sanderling, oystercatcher and redshank.
