As I pulled up at the Point I waited for a squally shower to pass and headed to the watch point and joined Ian. Sitting it out and allowing that squally shower to pass cost me a Bonxie along the beach! We had anywhere between clear skies and full cloud cover with a good 40-50 mph northwesterly wind.
Conditions out at sea this morning
As I hinted at above the sea was pretty quiet and my notebook records just 5 Common Scoters, two Red-throated Divers, eight Red-breasted Mergansers, 21 Kittiwakes, three Shelducks and a Fulmar.
A few waders were about including ten Turnstones, 200 Knots, 25 Grey Plovers and 90 Sanderlings.
I've postponed tomorrow's site visits until Thursday because of yet another atrocious forecast, but it is forecast to be a straight westerly so I might just have to go sea watching again "just in case"!
