Back to bleak February weather, thats more like it. Its not right seeing butterflies this early. Today was overcast and very windy from the WNW with gusts up to 60mph.

I managed to get down to Seaton Point with Bunty at about 5pm this evening and found the tides were right up the steps with no beach to walk on at all. I don't recall having seen the sea up that far before.

A few waders were having to stand up in the grass - 58 Oystercatchers, 30 Sanderling, 30 Curlew, 4 Bar tailed Godwits, 2 Grey Plovers and a Purple Sandpiper with one or two Dunlin and 50 Turnstone scattered around. A Kestrel and 2 Stonechats loitered around the caravans but thats about all really.

Weather not looking good for much this weekend...
