A cold morning with a fresh westerly breeze produced a trickle of birds offshore with 305 Common Scoters, a Velvet Scoter, a Great Skua, five Little Gulls and 86 Sandwich Terns. A juvenile/first-winter Glaucous Gull spent some time roosting at the Point.
Two Wheatears were seen on the beach between the road and fishing boats.
