long awaited east winds failed to deliver. started the day looking at the sea off ventnor but couldn't even stay an hour. with thousands of auks off portland and dunge why not in between? 21 brent geese were making the most of the easterlies and 10 rtd's went east. three visits to the canoe lake didn't produce anything of note but this was my first slr photo of an iow lesser black-back.
