A fine start has deteriorated into a wet afternoon. The female Red Breasted Merganser is still active and feeding well in the main channel. An Oystercatcher continues to feed a youngster on the opposite spit  and the most unusual sighting was a Great Spotted Woodpecker on a post adjacent to the Little Lagoon which made off over the harbour towards Church Norton...always a surprise for  me to see a woodpecker on a treeless beach. Apart from that a few Dunlin and Turnstones on the tideline and a Ringed Plover showing concern...obviously with nest or young nearby.
