A very good day at The Point today, although not awash with migrants on the land by the end of the day I had seen at least 8 Firecrests, 8 Continental Coal Tits,s 5 Goldcrest a Yellow-browed Warbler, Blackcap, Common Whitethroat, 40+ Swallows, Black Redstart all of which were around the lighthouse area. Also most of them showed very well.

On my second visit to The Patch today, I caught up with the Grey Phalarope (206 for the patch), unfortunately it was always well out of photographic range, also there of note 4 Common Terns.
 Most of my day was spent at the Old Lighthouse photographing the very obliging Sprites.
