Today Carbis Bay produced Divers and Common Gulls ( not so common and generally seen in the winter months). The White bait has turned up early in St Ives Bay and caused a feeding frenzy and according to the local godfather Carbis Bay was full of Auks, Gulls and good numbers of Divers. The Pacific Diver was there today showing fifty to a hundred metres or yards if you prefer, off shore and has been for a few days giving good views. I attempted a photograph but failed to nail a good shot, however I did manage with some success the Gulls. When the tide started to push I went around to Carnsew and photographed the 2nd winter Mediterranean Gull. A Purple Sandpiper was in amongst the numerous Dunlin but no sign of the P, Diver at Carnsew. Please click on the images to enlarge
