A brief visit during which 200+ Pale-bellied Brent Geese were counted on the whaleback and the north shore, including two colour-ringed birds.

Also on the north shore were c600 Bar-tailed Godwit, 170 Dunlin, 9 Grey Plover, 87 Redshank and 27 Curlew. The Scaup was still off the North End.

On the way off a Little Egret flew between the islands and 20 Ringed Plover were east of Middle Eye.
