Horsey Island this morning as tide retreats

Walking the bank from White House we saw numerous mixed flocks of Dunlin and Ringed Plover (maybe up to 50 Dunlin and 20 R Plover) A single Greenshank was fishing in one of the pools and a juvenile Northern Wheatear perched briefly on the bank top before flying off South. A Great Black Backed Gull tackled a crab...and won. A Cormorant was drying its wings on the mud bank and there were scattered BH Gulls throughout, maybe 25 in total.
