Newton Point 17th june

A quick visit to Newton Point after work to do a spot of sea watching was well worth it . Hundreds of auks flew past, mainly Common Guillemot but also a few Razorbills and Puffins, the real stars were the Manx Shearwaters which were gliding past at quite close range,in total we counted 27 flying north. The other spectacle was the masses of flowers in the hay meadow, including Red Clover, Buttercups, Birds foot Trefoil, Thrift and Pignut, the air was filled with an intense spice like aroma.
