I set out with high hopes to the North Wall early this morning but was disappointed to find the water level had risen considerably and all the 'interesting' waders had disappeared. A couple of Herons were quietly on the farthest pool....

and another by the sluice gate...

In the early evening I walked the Spit and found a couple of Wheatears 

...and flushed a pair of Whimbrel, with one flying directly over my head. 

Fortunately I had the camera at the ready as it took me by surprise and I could easily have missed the opportunity! 

So a quiet day but who knows what tomorrow may bring!
