Kingsbridge Estuary

Charleton Marsh / Bay ( 17:30-19:00, high tide ).

On the marsh 10+ Teal and 7 Black-tailed Godwits. Out on the estuary Curlew Sandpiper, 5 Dunlin and 15 Ringed Plover. 3 or 4 adult Med Gulls amongst the Black-headed. Walking back up the marsh and a adult female Marsh Harrier put in a show.                                                                                                    Back home in West Charleton just been outside to empty the trash and a Sandwich Tern calling as it passed over in the dark, unusual this far back from the estuary.
