Clear to Mostly Cloudy; SW@5-10mph, increasing to 10-20mph; Visibility good; Seas light to moderate; Tide near high falling to near low rising. Drove the outer beach to the point and spent most of the time there (did not check Hatches or RPS), with P.Flood until about 11:30, and joined by J.Young for about an hour mid-morning. Pretty slow for the most part, though a few nice birds (LIGU, CATE, LESP). Some eastward movement for the first couple of hours, then most of the movement was westward the rest of the time. Shearwaters again scarce and no GRSH or MASH once again!
