In the harbour a single Guillemot
and two Purple Sandpipers roosting
with Turnstones on the inner wooden breakwater
and Peregrine sitting in the nest box
on the Power Station chimney.
Widewater; I searched the entire length
of the beach from the flats to the sailing club
without finding the Snow Buntings once again.
On the beach a single Rock Pipit
and twenty-four Sanderling, off shore little other
than a few regular gulls.
