Migrants during an afternoon visit included a late Whinchat, two Wheatear and at least 12 Stonechat with a Jay by the Main Pond presumably the temporary resident rather than one of yesterday migrants. In the estuary 10 Cattle Egret were on The Wreck mid afternoon, presumably having moved from fields north of Cockwood where over 50 have been present. Wildfowl counts at low tide of 480 Teal, 100 Wigeon and 56 Dark-bellied Brent Goose. Elsewhere 11 Common Scoter and at least four Sandwich Tern were offshore.
