A morning visit on my bike. Numbers of ducks have increased with 820+ Wigeon, 345+ Teal, 84+ Shoveler, 16+ Pintail (with 10+ on estuary), 13 Tufted (9M, 4F) and a F Pochard. Latter two on lagoon with a Little Grebe.

Wader counts are mostly from Turf,  but include birds on marsh. 1520+ Golden Plover, nicely strung out to get a pretty decent count. 850+ Dunlin (50+ on marsh at high tide), Lapwing 450+, Blackwit 650+, Avocet 443, Barwit 31, Knot 34, Grey Plover 12, Redshank 100+ (but not counted accurately), Curlew 120+ (mostly on marsh), Oystercatcher 55+.

Also DB Brent Goose 350+, 53+ Common Gull, Red-breasted Merganser F & a Great Crested Grebe from Turf.

Otherwise 3 Marsh Harrier (2 2cy, 3cy male). Certainly 2 other birds about that haven’t seen today so minimum of 5 birds in area). Peregrine, 3+ Stonechat, 100+ Starling.
