got to splash point mid morning, didn't see a single bird for quarter of an hour and was about to leave, then all of a sudden the tap was turned on. funny how sea passage can start and stop so abruptly and at unexpected times... was there anything moving early morning i wonder. i ended up staying to midday seeing 23 arctic skua, 1 pom, 4 bonxies and 7 manxies.

at west rise the red-rumped swallow was showing very well going up and down the embankment on the south side of the recreational field, early morning before it warmed up. back home a sedge warbler was singing in a front garden of a house just a few doors down - i could hear it from mine so it's on the list! always good to see birds completely out of habitat.
