WeBS count

There was no sign of the Gull-billed Tern on the estuary this morning, leaving the assembled group of 20+ birders at Passage House disappointed thus far. A juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was the highlight of the WeBS count, supported by reasonable numbers of waders including 70 Oystercatchers, 63 Curlew, 8 Whimbrel, 6 Common Sandpipers, 4 Greenshanks and a Black-tailed Godwit. Also present were 9 Sandwich Terns, 25 Little Egrets, 41 Mute Swans, 2 Little Grebes, 550+ Black-headed Gulls (no Meds amongst them) and a Kingfisher.
