Amongst the roosting gulls, mostly black-headed, in the field towards Turf were a further 9 cattle egrets and a single lapwing. Later in the morning there were 26 cattle egrets roosting on the lagoon bank and a further 9 with cattle to the south.
At Turf 2 sandwich terns and an adult Med gull moulting into winter plumage. The juv marsh harrier was seen near the lagoon and again over a recently cut field next to Station Road with 2 common buzzards and 2 kestrels.
