Nothing out of the ordinary on the estuary this morning but there was a good variety nonetheless. A mix of waders gathered on and around Flow Point at high tide included 223 Oystercatchers, 66 Curlew, 11 Whimbrels, ten Redshanks, five Common Sandpipers (plus another three at Passage House) and two each of Dunlin and Ringed Plover. Other totals included three Greenshanks (Passage House), 36 Little Egrets, 32 Mute Swans, eight Canada Geese, seven Shelducks (including four well-grown young), four Mallards, four Sandwich Terns, ten Cormorants and five Shags.
