Following on with the Common Sandpiper theme, there were at least 18 today in the same spot, I reckon there could have been more on the rocks as well. Also, 2 Bar tailed Godwits, Lapwing, Redshank, Curlew, Swan, Cormorant and half a dozen Grey Heron present. Shelduck with juvs, Herring Gull, LBB Gull and BH Gull. A family of 5 Ravens on the marsh. House martins, Swallow and Swift. On the track were Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Both Whitethroat, Sedge Warbler, Dunnock, Goldfinch, Greenfinch and quite a few Robins noted.

The Flood had 1LRP, Wildfowlers’ 1 LRP and 1 Green Sandpiper. Freeman’s Pool 1 LRP, 6 Oystercatcher, 1 Little Grebe, Coot with 1 young, Moorhen with 5 chicks. Reed Bunting 2, and 1 Kestrel.
