The sea has become much less busy compared to last weekend. Although there are still little auks going by Fife Ness – I had 7 in about 30 minutes after lunch today – there was only an equivalent handful of guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes. Even the gannets are becoming much less common as they head south for their Christmas break in the sun. The ducks are coming back to Roome Bay for the winter though. A goldeneye, a common scoter female, and a small flock of wigeon, either feeding at the mouth of the Denburn or roosting at the mouth of the Brandyburn.
