Impossible to properly assess how many there truly were, especially since I'm completely unaware of their normal behavior here, but conservatively at least 500 in multiple large flocks. Most flocks oriented to SSW but probably some cycling around the point. Many flocks briefly perched and foraging on catkins around the point.
