The Spoonbill again roosted on Finger Point at high tide with the two Black-necked Grebe in the estuary returning to the Recording Area and three Egyptian Geese flying south down the river.

Counts from the estuary included 342 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 155 Grey and 24 Ringed Plover, 116 Teal, 112 Shelduck, 109 Wigeon, 36 Turnstone, 13 Red-breasted Merganser, nine Greenshank, three Goldeneye (mff) and three Mediterranean Gull, the regular two adults and a first winter. 

Elsewhere 10 Cirl Bunting were on site and a Great Northern Diver was off John's Watch.
