Mid-afternoon: 1 Spotted Redshank, 1 Curlew Sand up White's Creek, and 3 Ravens over the farm behind. One Kingfisher on the Breach Pool but the biggest surprise was a Water Shrew that dashed across the top path just beyond the sluice. First one I've ever seen here and the first I've seen anywhere for years!! (AB)
A further visit late morning, with the tide dropping, produced a good bit more interest... a large gathering of gulls was present feeding offshore at the mouth of the breach, this flock containing 20 Common and 3+ Sandwich Terns and perhaps a dozen Med Gulls. On the pools close scrutiny of the Dunlin flock produced 2 Little Stints and there were now 5 Bar-tailed Godwits. The Peregrine showed again, the Wheatears were also still present and a Yellow Wagtail went over calling (BFF/OM).
