Brand's Bay

Today 16th November went over to the bay again with the hope of seening a Great-northern Driver a lifer for me. After much scanning the bay I found the diver and with confirmation from other birders I got my lifer.
Out in the bay were more Red-breasted Mergansers and far over in the distance the imm- Surf Scoter was there again it must like it in the bay as it as been here for almost 2 weeks now.
Birds seen today were
Surf Scoter, Great-northern Diver, Goldeneye, Wigeon, Great-crested Grebes, Shelduck, Little Egrets,
Oystercatchers, Turnstones, Brent Geese, Curlew, Black-headed Gulls, a Grey Heron flying over and on the heath Wren , Stonechats.

It was a very nice afternoon and when the tide went ou,t the bay came alive with the sound of Curlew, Oystercatchers and other birds and I just sat there taking in all the sounds what a special place to just sit and listern and let the world go by.
