Marine Drive & Harbour

Great Black Backed Gull

Herring Gull



Peregrine Falcon



An afternoon walk around the marine drive to the harbour and back resulted in a pleasant few hours birding. Lots of Guillemots in the North Bay and the harbour plus one young Razorbill.
A flock of 22 Turnstone were busy feeding on the slipway in the harbour and several lazy Great Black Backed Gulls were sitting on the posts on the harbour side. As I walked back around the Marine Drive I came across a young shag sat on the rocks before it jumped in to the sea patrolling around for its tea.
