No clickers required...

2 Great Northern Divers and a Little Gull were seen on my early morning watch today. Pink Floyd joined me on a dreek day,  mist and rain and no wind. Our expectations were not high but we saw a good number of species if not any real numbers, so my three clickers remained in my bag.
A large Diver going north had an upturned bill but i could not make out a pale or ivory bill in the poor conditions so i logged it as Great Northern
I did not manage to video the rain but did film an Umbrellabird in Ecuador last week, see below
This is what we saw in order of appearance
