Made it back down to Ballycotton today, after mitching off down west Yesterday.
Not much on offer, except distant views of Alec's Surf Scoter from the northern fringe of the patch. Only my second at BallyC after my first earlier this year, so I cannot complain.
Plenty of divers around the bay, with 3 red throats (very scarce last winter), numerous Great Northerns and what looked like 1 very distant Black Throat (though I was not sure).
No sign of my slavs around.
Off patch, a juv/female Long Tailed duck was at Rostellan. Maybe it will flake over to Ballycotton and give me a chance at a patch tick...
