Splash Point - 10 year anniversary 15/4/14

The anniversary actually relates to my first ever Pomarine Skua on this date 10 years ago at Splash Point, so after work today I phoned and then met Bob down there at 4pm, leaving at 6.30ish in the hope of an early Pom. This wasn't to be, but a couple of very good highlights were seen, and was well worth a random visit.

Totals are:

Red-necked Grebe - 1 offshore for 5 minutes before being lost as it drifted east
Black-throated Diver - 1 offshore just in front of the Grebe
Common Tern - 9
Arctic Tern - 1
Great Skua - 1
Red-throated Diver - 3
Whimbrel - 5
Bar-tailed Godwit - 32
Tufted Duck - 1
Common Scoter - 5
Sandwich Tern - 8
