A short pre tide visit saw 300 Knot flying out of the estuary towards Hoylake on the journey over, the 5 Eider drifting along the east side with the tide and 2 Little Egret in the gutter.
 The Brent Geese were mostly west of Middle Eye and 296 were counted.
On the east Hoyle were 380 Dunlin, 18 Sanderling, 65 Curlew and a single Bar Tailed Godwit.
Two Grey Plover were below the observatory.
