A watch from Cockwood Steps on the dropping tide gave counts of 90 Shelduck, 80 Teal, 49 Turnstone, 46 Redshank, 42 Shag, 12 Great Crested and a Little Grebe, five Red-breasted Merganser, three Avocet and two Kingfisher. The two Spoonbill were in Cockwood Harbour before moving to the estuary, a Cattle Egret flew over, a Sandwich Tern was on Bull Hill and the drake Goldeneye was in Shutterton Creek.
Elsewhere the first Purple Sandpiper of the year was on Langstone Rock late afternoon.
Offsite a Great Northern Diver and a female Scaup were mid channel north of Cockwood.
