Late Bonxie , a bit late, sorry!

Whilst trying to find some Porpoises on Monday I was searching with my bins in the hope that the seabirds might give me a clue as to the porp's location.
Out beyond the lighthouse a familiar looking critter, a Bonxie hove into view seemingly attracted by some feeding gulls just off the light. After a brief foray at them it wheeled off back whence it came. Only other bird of note was a single drake Scoter heading west. There seems to have been a general lack of divers around Strumble/ Fishguard this winter although a little Egret seems to be regularly visiting the harbour.
