The highlight was the presence of at least two Little Gull, an adult and a first winter that spent most of their time feeding in the estuary but also moved offshore at times. A scarce bird in recent years. Also offshore two Great Northern and two Red-throated Diver with a small southerly passage of Kittiwake and northerly passage of Black-headed Gull.
Elsewhere WeBS counts on a low neap tide included 860 Dunlin, 101 Oystercatcher, 70 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 61 Knot, 48 Grey and five Ringed Plover, nine Red-breasted Merganser and two Sanderling, with two Shoveler on the Main Pond and offsite a Red Kite south over Eastdon.
