Roome Bay and Saucehope point are very good for red-throated divers at the moment. There are at least five or six offshore looking like pale grey and white cormorants. They, as their name suggests, spend a lot of the time underwater looking for fish. Closer in, sometime even in the surf, are goldeneyes that also spend a lot of time underwater. I think there are about 6 this winter, perhaps 3 or 4 less than last winter.

Red-throated diver - several visible at Roome Bay just now
