18th February 2011

A cold south easterly with low misty cloud made photographs impossible, nevertheless 155 Brent and 21 Purple Sandpipers were counted on the high tide visit, also records of 2 male and 2 female Pintail and 3 Lapwings on the whaleback.
Just 1 Red-throated Diver and 12 Common Scoters were on the sea, while 60 Grey Plover were noted and 7,000 Oystercatchers were in the high tide roost. A single Rock Pipit and a Blackbird were the only significant land birds.
