Razorbills, there were at least a dozen razorbills feeding in the canal, when we were on the Sandwich side, they were across the way on the Scuesset side and when we went to the Scuesset side they were on the Sandwich side.

Initially when we visited Plymouth harbor, the tide was extremely far out and there were no birds in the parking lot, not even rock doves. However, as we made our way back home we re-stopped at the harbor and were able to add the Iceland go to our list (no picture however).
