An hour long early morning sea-watch produced almost nothing of note and whilst the 'blue' in the title could refer to any number of appendages afterwards I'd rather add it to Fulmar to get the only vaguely interesting individual of the session. 10 other bog standard Fulmars moved south as did an adult Mediterranean Gull.

The Wansbeck was mostly frozen and most of the wildfowl have departed pastures better apart from a handful of Goldeneye and a single Red-breasted Merganser.

Bothal Pond too was pretty iced up, though at least here I had the good fortune to stumble on a female  Scaup that is fairly fresh in, excuse the image quality, it was some distance across the pond.
