From the above photos of two coastal species, you can believe Peterborough was by the sea this weekend. The Common Scoter was found by Hugh Wright  today (Sunday 10th) Maxey Gravel Pits-a good month before we usually get inland Scoters as the move between the Seven and Wash.

The Common Seal was found by my Dad on January 1st from a moving car at the Dog in a Doublet, near Whittlesey. At the time we were partaking in a 'big day' (seeing as many species of bird as possible in a day) we had no time to stop. Over a month later this marine animal is still seemingly enjoying life over 25 miles inland.
