Straight away another bird watcher put me onto the bird and initially it was quite distant but very mobile. It became apparent that it was doing circuits every 5 minutes or so which enabled me to get into a decent position without scaring it. I took about 40 shots and only about 5 of them are useable due to low light and a very twitchy bird - but there were a couple of good shots.
There was also a flock of about a 100 snow buntings on the beach, but fairly distant and dog walkers kept putting them up. Somebody said there had been a Peregrine on the mast at the base of the pier earlier, but I missed it. Then it started to snow - and boy did it snow, I decided to get home quick.
