Strumble Head 6 p.m.

A quick walk around the headland from the Lighthouse as far as Richard's Valley found suprisingly 6 Wheatears , a few looking very tired. A very short seawatch from the lookout saw hundreds of Manxies passing & not too far out in the very strong Northerly. Finally species no. 100 on the local patch yearlist & very appropriate that it should be Manx Shearwater. I never get tired of watching them.
