Off shore there was some activity with a few Eiders, Scoters and Red Breasted Mergansers moving west. A flock of  27  Pintail flew in off the sea to the harbour. The usual Knot flock were wheeling over their high tide roost being repeatedly disturbed by surf boarders ...there was an exceptinally good surf today! Dunlin were feeding along the tide line along with Turnstone and a few Grey Plover.
