Another Day At The Office.........

.........began with a walk down the Point. It was a different morning to yesterday with no drizzle, clearer conditions out in the Bay and a stiffer southeasterly wind.

There were a few waders on the beach including 78 Oystercatchers, 15 Turnstone and 28 Sanderling. Vis was virtually non existent with just 3 Chaffinch, single Meadow and Rock Pipits and single Alba Wag all heading west.

 Turnstone

On the sea were 36 Eiders, 33 Cormorants, 5 Great Crested Grebes, 3 Red-throated Divers, 5 Razorbills, 7 Auk sp., Shelduck and Common Scoter. So not exactly jumping with birds, but a nice way to start the day.
