On its flat rock, it had plenty of seaweed to feed on.
Did this lone goose lose its flock, after maybe flying with them all the way from the Arctic? Too tired to continue?
Or is it just here because it likes the food? Every now and then, the waves come in, maybe bringing more seaweed.
On the north side of the jetty, a juvenile black guillemot swims, and dives quickly.
A female chaffinch on a rock. Resting here, tired from autumn migration?
On another rock, another common bird species: a young herring gull. It is special, because of the ring around its leg.
Yet another pipit. As the jetty here is further out into the sea, away from the earlier sand dunes: maybe this one is a rock pipit, not a meadow pipit?
