A male and 2 female Pintail were seen flying west early on and Bar-tailed Godwit numbers had increased to 105 with 7 Little Egrets and a single Grey Heron.
Purple Sandpipers now number five and 240 Dunlin were seen in two separate flocks, the Pale-bellied Brents were difficult to count today but 120 were noted, also 25 Shelduck and 250 Oystercatcher; one with what was probably a very old worn colour ring difficult to read.
Three Whooper Swans flew over the island going east.
Gull numbers had fallen today after yesterday's razor shell feast with 100 Black-headed and 400 Herring.
There was a small thrush passage with a male and female Blackbird, a Song Thrush and 2 Redwing, 6 Skylarks also flew over.
Seven Crows were around the islands with the usual small numbers of Wren, Robin and Dunnock. A flock of 28 Linnets came in just before the rain started.
The unwell Grey Seal was still hauled out on the rocks at the North End.
