Horsey Island

A good look at Horsey Island during the incoming tide before most of the waders were moved on by rising water levels (Spring tide 17.45 - 9.0m)

No sign of the Great White Egret but after close inspection of the waders & waterfowl - 1 Little Stint & 1 Curlew Sandpiper amongst 56 Dunlin,3 Grey Plover, 9 Ringed Plover, 5 Barwits, 6 Blackwits & a number of mobile Greenshank covering a wide area!

Waterfowl - 2 Pintail, 1 Wigeon & 1 Shoveler  & more sleeping duck behind the rushes a good distance away so difficult to be certain of ID.
