Brown Muds, Green Sands, Red Ads..

Dan here.

A 2nd-winter Mediterranean gull on the estuary was perhaps the best find in a somewhat brief late morning visit. One each of bar-tailed and black-tailed godwit were also noted on the mud.

Waders on the flood comprised two little ringed plovers and a single green sand. Ten adult pied wagtails were new here, but all were scattered by a swooping first plumage peregrine.

A further two green sandpipers were noted using the Wildfowler's Pools.

Three swifts were hunting over the marsh. A few red admirals were feeding in areas sheltered from the stiff breeze.
