On the beach at 7.00am, and on the shoreline a Whimbrel and a Common Sandpiper just outside the bungalow. A stroll up to the hide ... the Peregrine was in the usual spot on the saltmarsh and then, as I returned past the Lagoon, a Common Sandpiper called and flew along and landed almost in front of Laguna and was joined by a Little Ringed Plover.This is a first for me at this location but alas, it was soon disturbed by a dog walker and flew to the other side.
In view of this I thought the North Wall might be productive but the only waders were a Common Sandpiper and a fairly confiding Curlew.
A number of junior Little Egrets were practicing their flying skills in the hawthorns
....and a rather motley Heron appeared between the sluice gates as I left.
