The Plym Estuary welcomed me back, in glorious conditions, after a sustained period of neglect! Little Egrets are up to 12 but Curlews disappointing at just 36. Also 112 Redshanks, 2 Dunlins, 2 Common Sandpipers, 1 female Teal, 2 Little Grebes, 3 Goldcrests.

Later (midday / early afternoon) on the falling tide, the Lesser Yellowlegs showed at Ernesettle Creek on both sides of the river though always quite distant (best viewed from the patch of grass which gives access to the estuary-side below the football pitch). Also a couple of Greenshanks and c12 Teal there.
