Also in the Bight five Little Stint and three Curlew Sandpiper amongst 327+ Dunlin, 171+ Ringed Plover, 33 Sanderling and 31 Knot. Other counts from the estuary included 294 Redshank, seven Bar-tailed Godwit, six Wigeon, five Whimbrel, two Mediterranean Gull, a Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere a Whinchat was in Greenland Lake but other migrants were limited to four Wheatear and two Willow Warbler.
