A Merlin (right) stayed around the north end for a short while and then went off east, while a Lapwing went west between the islands and a Teal (below) landed in the east gutter.
Only 9 Brent could be found on the shore along with 20 Sanderling and 26 Bar-tailed Godwits.
As with the last week or so 4 Dunnocks are still on the island with at least 2 Rock Pipits.
