In a wind swept Fishguard Harbour this afternoon 4 Great Northern Divers and a single Great Crested Grebe.
The Firecrest is still present at Dinas Cross.

Nothing really out of the ordinary, to be honest I was snapping birds just to keep alert as the porp's were extremely elusive, up, down. gone.
You have to wonder why these sea birds choose to battle against forty mile an hour winds when they could find a bit of shelter and ride out the storms.
Kittiwakes are real sea gulls and seem to make a leisurely almost effortless progress over the maelstrom!
Most puzzling perhaps are the auks. The Razorbills and Guillemots that do not effortlessly drift on long wings. They buzz along with whirring wings that must use up energy like a Chevvy V8. Why not hang around in the shelter of a lee coast or Fishguard Harbour?

Lots of divers around in the past week or two mostly too far out to id to species.A Stonechat was a nice sighting as they have been thin on the ground recently! Ken Barnett captured this rather nice Bonxie flying by on Wednesday the 27th, along with some porpoises!
