End of 3 day tour allows a quick visit!

My tour group were treated to 2.5 hours of excellent birding from Gore Pt as the 3 day winter tour drew to an end. The highlights from 2PM till dusk were 22 Eider flying east, close inshore , a few Red-throated Diver, Fulmar west, c2000 Common Scoter, c2000 Pink-feet arriving on the marsh, 2-3 Barn Owls hunting, c40 Snow Bunting passing along the shoreline, & a beautiful Short-eared Owl perched on bushes affording brilliant scope views.

All of these birds on a day that finished in fantastic light & a beautiful sunset.
