Although it was high tide in the estuary there were noticeably fewer birds on the marsh today, The most abundant wader was redshank (c60+) with a few curlew. Duck numbers were low with just a handful of pintail, shoveller and mallard. Teal and wigeon numbers reasonably high with about c200 of each. On the lagoon there were 12 tufted duck and 4 pochard amongst the coots.

As the tide fell the estuary attracted c300 black-tailed godwit and a similar number of golden plover. On Greenland Bank there were at least 133 redshank, 40+ bar-tailed godwit and c30 knot. In the channel close to Turf were a few avocet, one greenshank and 2 red-breasted merganser.

In Station Road a chiffchaff sang, a pair of bullfinch were eating buds and a distant skylark sang briefly.
