Arrived at Snab Point at 07:30 to be met by an active, female Sparrowhawk over the cottages to the north, heading beachward. It was seen again over the rocks half an hour later spooking the waders.
Flocks of Kittiwakes south, Sarnie Terns too, one distant diver, and three Arctics north (two dark and one pale). Gannets up and down in small numbers and hods of GBBGs south.
Pale skua north at 08:30, slightly larger and flying slightly slower than an Arctic but no tail 'spoons'. I still await my first Pom.
Cresswell had the Spotty Redshank at 08:50 (north of the causeway) along with a few Dunlin, at least one Pintail duck and one Knot.
The Pools were very quiet. Saw a male of the species Blogger Prestwickcarrii near the Oddie, after amazingly close views of a female Marsh Harrier from the south-facing hide. On the sea, many RTDs and one Darctic Skua, predictably harrying a tern and a group of six RBMs.
East Chev was dead (I am fast becoming a Vanellusaphobe), you can only take so many Lapwings (over 300 o/s the main hide on the North Pool), and half a dozen Swifts over the path to it (PC Wanderings take note).
