Sunday 17th September

A quick late evening visit saw a significant increase of wildfowl with 510 Wigeon and 266 Teal in Shutterton Creek along with the eclipse male Pintail, five Grey Heron, four adult Mediterranean Gull and a Whimbrel.

No news was received from high tide wader roosts but a check of a small flock of presumed Redshank feeding on the damp golf course fairways revealed instead a flock of 18 Ruff! Another unexpected site record, with 12 on 28 Dec 1960 the only previous double-figure count.
