A flock of 85 Surf Scoters just flew in and landed off the point.     There have been few scoters around this year and this is about the biggest flock.   Unfortunately, they are still fairly distant.    I took a couple of minutes to scope them as they were landing and afterwards and I wasn't able to pick out a single black or White-winged in the flock.

Other than that, a few Northern Gannets and a singing Eastern Towhee have been the highlights today.
