R.Taw off Pottington and Ashford Strand.

1415 - 15:30

216 Dark-bellied Brent and c3000 Golden Plover on Penhill Marsh side with c50 Wigeon undecided wether or not to land. 4 Black-tailed Godwit and just 1 Grey Plover off Pottington. The Golden Plover were very skittish and constantly taking off and landing.

c300 Dunlin; 8 Goosander(1 male & 8 Redheads); 1 Turnstone; 1 Grey Plover; 28 Wigeon and 2 Bar-tailed Godwit at Ashford Strand. Too many Lapwings on the river to estimate let alone count.
