There was a considerable surf coming into Roome Bay this morning. I watched the goldeneyes as they dived between the waves indifferent to the rough and cold water. Perhaps not so cold though. The weather is still incredibly mild and the sea temperatures must be much higher than usual. Certainly looking further out it looked more like a September sea than mid-winter. There were thousands of kittiwakes spread out from east to west about 5 kilometers out and with them still lots of gannets, auks and fulmars.goldeneye3
