Black Velvet

For the 3rd day running a stunning drake Velvet Scoter has gone North past the Obs
Here's hoping the Surf Scoter at Filey comes our way over the weekend
It was a lovely calm dark grey sea today with a heavy swell and very noisy with the waves hitting the shore. It was made all the more atmospheric by the huge tall ship on the horizon

Friday 28th June 05.00-07.00 W2 cloud, calm sea,heavy swell and rain by 7am
