|Purple Sandpipers (JE)|
A winter plumaged Slavonian Grebe was seen by visiting birders on the flooding tide and 25 Great Crested Grebes were also counted (see photo below). A Great Northern Diver flew east and ditched in but was lost to view in the swell. The 15 Purple Sandpipers present were more than have been about most of this winter, eight roosted at the north end over high tide. Some pictures below from today.
