29+ whimbrel was the best count so far this spring, my best count of 85+ common gull for the marsh and included 1 1st summer Mediterranean gull, 26+ greenshanks, 16+ dunlin, 3 bar tailed godwits, 120+ black tailed godwits, 55+ curlew, 1 pochard, 1 tufted duck, 3 little grebes, 18+ little egrets, 2+ reed warblers, 6+ blackcaps, 2 willow warblers. On the walk down to the hide 1 nuthatch. 

A quick look of the goat walk produced 3 sandwich terns.
