On a flat calm evening we walked around the Seaton Point. The tide is a big one so there was no beach to walk on confining us to the caravan site. 4 Swifts flew south overhead, 115 Linnets were on overhead wires and a good number of waders were on the only spot of shore line available - 30 each Dunlin and Ringed Plover, 12 Knot, 1 Bar tailed Godwit, loads of Redshank and Turnstone ( maybe 50 each?).

Back along to the village and a scan from the seawatch seat had 2 Roseate Terns loafing around and 4 Goosanders on the sea. A female Sparrowhawk dashed through putting 50 Swallows into a panic...

No willow warblers let alone greenish...

Cheers Darrell, the furthest I've lived from the sea in my life is 6 miles. Its great for its variety, even on slow days...
