Back to the Point...

It has been a long wait .. But as we rush into Spring I could not resist a walk to the Point.
Last year, on almost exactly the same date, I saw a few Wheatear and a Brambling.

This year the sun was shining and it felt like Summer.. Except for the birds, which were more in line with an October day!
1 Goldcrest (at the Hood), 2 Merlin along the shingle, 2 Fieldfare, a few Blackbirds and a youn male Eider close to shore..
There were plenty of Sandwich Terns (calling and a few seen distantly), which were my first for the year.
