Red Throated Divers

I've spent an hour or so at Rock-a-Nore these last two mornings, unsurprisingly spring passage was not much in evidence, apart from 2 Gadwall east today.

However there was a steady eastwards movement of Red Throated Divers this morning, better than one a minute with a total of 79. This was actually the most I have seen any day this winter, when numbers have been modest. [2 years ago I witnessed the largest movement recorded in Sussex, when 1500 moved west in 2.5 hrs on Jan 1]. Otherwise it was the usual core species: 47 auks, 8 Great Crested Grebes, 9 Gannets and 1 Scoter east today, similar numbers yesterday.
