The sea at Borth

Saturday last.    2 black-throated diver off Borth lifeboat stn, 100s of auks off the golf club with ca 1400 gulls, mainly herring. The odd gannet drifted in as well. 4 scoter and a tufted, 12 gc grebe and  6 red-throats.
 Lots of stuff further out as well. For a while I thought the herring gulls were achieving ca 50% success with sprat-diving but after watching a little longer it was apparent they were maybe at 10-20%!
