NATURE JOTTINGS. ON THE OCCURRENCE OF VELVET SCOTERS IN LLANDUDNO BAY. Even if not consorted with the parties of common scoters which visit the north coast o," Wales during the winter months it has long been suspected that the velvet, scoter not infrequently pays us a visit. The specimen that, was obtained on the Conway in 1899, and another shot later, constituted the only records we possessed of its occurrence on our coast. Observers, long acquainted! with the study of ornithdlogy and who could instantly dis- tinguish between the two species, have not. apparently, seen the rarer of the two on the coast between Liverpool and Conway bays, consequently it is little to be wondered at why the occurrence of four birds in Llandudno- Bay on Novem- ber 30th has been hailed with delight. These ducks, or. rather, a, part of them, were in no .hurry to leave us, for on December 1st three were sporting and d-vin.g in almost exactly the same spot as they were the day previous. Four clays later the little group was again divided, and the number intent on remaining was .rectuced to two, but th-L.s time they had approached much closei-, to the beach. From the 6th to the, 8th, only one of the Pa,l,tv coul,d! be. seen. Twice I saw it at the place where the two had been seen, and twice away to the left of the pier. Except on the 5th, when the two in- dividuals were resting on the water, they dived repeatedly, and often on coming to the surface it was possible to see that thev brought up food with them. R. W. J.
