An enjoyable late afternoon and early evening counting over the high tide. Wader numbers were up with a good mix of passage and returning birds: 363 Oystercatchers, 48 Curlew, 19 Redshanks, 14 Dunlin, 10 Greenshanks, nine Common Sandpipers, four Ringed Plovers and two Whimbrel. Other totals between Passage House and Flow Point included 33 Mute Swans, 26 Little Egrets, five immature Shelducks, five Little Grebes, two Water Rails and two Kingfishers.
