The sea and The Point were dead this morning, even the Glaucous Gull eluded me. I pulled up behind Dave Walkers car on the road at the ARC Pit and could see he was trying photograph something. Soon i was watching and trying photograph 3 Scandinavian Rock Pipits which was surprisingly difficult to do as they were in the short dense scrub. Also seen from the car was a Slavonian Grebe and a couple of Goldeneye. From Hansen Hide a red head Smew and a pair of Goldeneye were performing close to the hide and a Bittern flew in.
