Brighton Marina

Yesterday (Friday 29th) I went to Brighton Marina. There had been reports of Little Auk down there, but I also thought there might be a Grebe or Gull to see. The weather was not the best, no rain but windy as anything. Both marina arms were closed due to the waves crashing against it.

Have got some photos of surfers on the water, but don't seem to want to show on here. With those winds there were not a lot to see. Little Auk was a no show and hadn't been seen all day. It could however get to all sorts of sheltered places that couldn't be seen so it may still be there. Cormorant, Herring Gull, Mute Swan and Black-headed Gull all seen within the marina walls. On the sea however Fulmar and Little Gull made appearances while Common Gulls were also in abundance. It was not the best viewing conditions but it was fun.
