An hour’s visit this morning produced 1 Ruff, 1 Greenshank, 2 Snipe, c100 Avocets, 150+ Redshanks, 1500+ Blackwits, 6 Gadwall and 3 Greylags among others. Brief visitors were a Marsh Harrier and a Peregrine, which came twice to, unsuccessfully, chase the waders and needed a rest on the ground after the second go, before a Crow flushed it in its turn. The regular LBB Gull was joined by a GBB in its attempts to snatch a Dunlin, but they failed too.
