Soar, Plym Estuary & Saltram

Arrived later than normal at Soar because I wanted to check the fog situation after yesterday's experience. A fine spell until about midday allowed some birding but little of note. Spotted flycatcher, Yellow Wagtail (3), Chiffchaff (24), and Blackcap (10). Then the fog clamped down again!

Nine species of wader on the Plym tonight - Bar-tailed Godwit, Oystercatcher (5), Curlew (43), Redshank (120), Greenshank (3), Dunlin (4), Ringed Plover (2 juvs), Common Sandpiper (3) and Turnstone. Also c90 Swallows and 2 Chiffchaffs.
