Splash Point 8/5/18

My last day off before going back to work,  and so I continued the trend of the last few days. A very poor seawatch enlivened every now and then by the odd Pom. Thankfully it was Dad's 60th birthday today that gave me no choice but to leave late morning and perhaps saying farewell to another Pom season. Once again it was the Poms that provided the main highlight today, especially the group of five birds that emerged from the murk.
