DOWITCHER still present
Drake SMEW still showing well albeit rather distant this morning at Longtown, on one of the waterbodies on the Gretna road.
At Port Carlisle, the first-winter LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER was showing well down from the old harbour wall then later to the left of the harbour (see Tristan Reid's superb images above). Large flocks of Dunlin and Red Knot also there, with a large number of Barnacle Geese also in the vicinity (per Brian Henderson).
