Late morning visit and tide still high. One common sandpiper near the jetty and one knot on the pontoon. Three great white egrets flew north past the Turf and landed on the mud to the NE. A juvenile peregrine attacked a black-tailed godwit but the godwit escaped although a great black-backed gull tried unsuccessfully to catch it.  A few chiffchaffs calling in the trees alongside the canal.
