All at sea

Bird Watching (UK) - - #my200birdyear -

Be­fore we leave the coast, re­mem­ber that our shores are not just oc­cu­pied by waders and wild­fowl. Win­ter is one of the best times for see­ing divers on the sea, as well as scarce grebes (Slavo­nian and Black­necked and Red-necked). North Sea storms can bring in ‘wrecks’ of Lit­tle Auks, which look good on any year list. And the land near the shore is a great place to catch up with such ‘scarce’ and hugely de­sir­able land­birds as Snow Bunt­ings, La­p­land Bunt­ings, Shore Larks and Twite, all of which choose to come to the pe­cu­liarly coastal habi­tats for win­ter.
