 A handful of local Meadow Pipit were about and 46 passed over along with 3 Reed Bunting , 18 Skylark and 9 Pied Wagtail. On the island were 18 Linnet, 4 Dunnock and 5 Goldcrest.
Turnstone were counted at 62, Ringed plover 24 and Redshank 160.
A Raven flew east passed the North End and 8 Pintail flew west. An unusual record came from Jane Turner who saw a Water Rail fly from the direction of Middle Eye towards Red Rocks.
