Aveton Gifford

Yesterday 20th Aveton Gifford along the tidal road on a low tide despite the mist and rain, a total count of 21 Little Egret, 4 Common Sandpiper, a good number of Gulls present Greater Black Backed, Herring and Black Head with good numbers of 1st year Black Headed.

Notable drop in the numbers of Mute Swan that were present

A single Oyster Catcher, small number of Curlew, a dark coloured Indian Runner Duck with the Mallards was an oddity until it could be seen clearly.
