Clear to Partly Cloudy; S@5-10mph, increasing to 10-20mph; Visibility good; Seas light; Tide low to high. Drove Pole Line Road to the point and sea watched there until 09:30. After a quick check of Hatches Harbor, I headed back to the cove area and spent the rest of the time there. There were a few eastbound shearwaters (vast majority MASH) during the first hour, then none until late morning when a few more appeared, moving in both directions. A steady westbound movement of terns and LAGU began about 6:45, and continued in varying intensity throughout the morning.
