The North Wall again!

An early start in pursuit of the Curlew Sand in Whites Creek resulted in another blank! 
Plenty of Redshanks...

 ...and a Spotted Shank

 and later accompanied by Greenshank.... but no Curlew Sandpiper.
A small group of Yellow Legged Gulls was good to see but only a couple were showing their yellow legs!
Yellow Legged Gulls

On Breech Pool the usual birds plus two Littlle Ringed Plovers and two Common Sandpipers. In the reed bed Reed Warblers feeding youngsters and a couple of Sedges

A small flock of Canada Geese came crashing in
Here's one

...and the resident Heron

A few Chiifchaffs and a pair of Whitethroats in the bushes and that was it...will try for the Curlew Sand another morning.
