A quick last scan of the beach, bay and rockwall on my way out, brought the bird into view on top of the rockwall about 50yds from the edge of the beach. Overall Buffy colored, with a pale supercilium and a slightly darker mask, flicking it's tail showing the white tail and rump pattern. In view for about 20 seconds before it hopped the other side of the rockwall. Did not re-appear, and whilst I did not see it fly, I did go to get my camera and phone from the car which was close. I have seen many Wheatears in the UK, and a fairly common sight in fall on beaches, dunes, and rocky areas on the coast. There's a lot of habitat at and around Liberty SP, including the golf course, another favored spot by the species, but hopefully it can be re-found. I had no opportunity for photos, and it was distant, but had a good scope view in excellent early morning front light.
