A pair of Kestrels had a scuffle with another one over the cliffs, and five Buzzards circled overhead.
Out at sea a young Gannet passed north, three Common Scoters were flushed by a boat and a small group of Sandwich terns flew past.
After rock-pooling for a while we had a picnic by the visitor centre and had great views of a flock of Barnacle geese migrating, something I had not seen before.
A walk in the woods revealed one, possibly two Treecreepers. On a sheltered spot three Common Darters and a Migrant Hawker. Red Admiral, Small Tortoiseshell, Large White and Speckled Wood were on the wing. While watching the beach from the top of the cliff, Lucy pointed at a seal. The seal, flippers up, tried to stay on top of a rock, but the tide was coming up fast and, very reluctantly, the seal ended up having to dive in the water. A great end for a great day out.
