                An hour out on the point in the evening just before it started to rain produced 2 Whimbrel, a Bar-tailed Godwit, 150+ Common Scoter, a few Arctic and Common Terns, 21 Goosander and a decent flock of Black-headed and Common Gulls loafing around on the sea.   On the walk back from the point there was a Grey Partridge in the front field with 4 half grown, half flying chicks.
