Larry Flynn and I did a survey of the water around the Norwalk  
Islands on Saturday 4 February 2012.

The scoters were mostly in deep water well out of sight of shore. A  
lot of the Brant and Wigeon were on the south side of the islands out  
of sight. The two Gannets were adults. We failed to see any  
Razorbills. Although we did see one last week.
