A fishing frenzy in the Taw/Torridge estuary late afternoon with a huge flock of Common Tern. Dave Paull lost count at 1000. Just a handful of Sandwich Tern.

There were 4 Bar-tailed Godwit, but small waders were still in short supply. However 3 moulting adult Curlew Sandpiper were my first for the year, and also present 3 Knot, 1 Sanderling and 1 Dunlin
