By the harbour, a great number of the Great Scaups winter every year and now many of them have left for their breeding grounds in Siberia. A few dozen of them were still resting in the water quite close to the shore.
The three of them really got into foraging in the shallows, right by the human activities.
A lone Black-headed Gull (Yurikamomeユリカモメ) was near them, also picking something out of the shallows.
Cormorants (Kawauカワウ) were all out of water, drying and warming in the sun:)
On the little sandy area (I am not sure if I would call it a 'beach'...), people were clamming.
