Weather: WSW force 3 mostly cloudy, vis 10 miles
Considering it was a westerly there were a few surprises of note including 6 Sand Martins flying off the south end, a Golden Plover travelling west passed the light boat house and a Sedge Warbler caught in the obs garden net, which incidentally showed a very obvious fault bar in the tail.
Oystercatchers are now everywhere, 6,500 estimated seen but higher counts would certainly have been made at their high tide roost. Other waders were 76 Curlew, 30 Ringed Plover, 8 Turnstone, 6 Sanderling, 5 Bar-tailed Godwits and 20 Knot, the latter two species seen here feeding on the north shore against the morning light.
