Like many others, I trudged up to the Point today.
Started well with a grey phalarope along the beach after 15 mins and dropped onto the sea. Not much else on the walk up but there were a few wheatears trying to find shelter. The flycatcher performed well despite the heavy rain and as it eased off I decided to thrash the cover on the way back.
There were small numbers of migrants about including 3 redstart, 15 redwing, 10 song thrush, 2 blackcap, 19 robin and single garden warbler, goldcrest and chiff.
Back on the beach there was an adult little gull, 2 arctic skuas and amazingly another grey phal flying west along the beach.
A good day just a shame about the weather!!
