No white-wing

Spurred on by a photo on twitter showing an odd looking Velvet Scoter, I was down at Seaham for first light. No sign of any adult drake Velvets, just a single female with 40 odd Common Scoter. As it happens further photos from Graham S confirmed the id of yesterday's Scoter as Velvet and not the hoped for White-winged. A Great Northern Diver flying north and a couple of Red-throated kept me entertained in the rain.
