Black-throated Diver off Aberavon Beach

The bay off Aberavon Beach is a much quieter place these days, with most of the Great Crested Grebes now moved on to their breeding grounds. Today, however, there was a Black-throated Diver on the sea. Seen from the dunes at the NW end of Scarlet Avenue. Unfortunately, I lost it while moving to a more sheltered spot to take a picture. The bird was seen at 10:30, around high tide, and the same bird was relocated very far out about 45mins later. Hopefully this bird will stick around for while for me to capture on camera?

18 Great Crested Grebe, 1 Red-throated Diver and 4 Golden Plover(flew east) also seen from here. No sign of the Scoter sp seen at the weekend.

Also in the bay were at least 2 Harbour Porpoise.
