The solitary Rock Pipit is still “guarding” the nest site, but I also saw it feeding, but don’t know if it returned to nest with food.
The waders are starting to trickle back.
Redshank - 7 together plus 1 juvenile with
Turnstone 6 summer plumage plus 2 juvenile
Common Tern - at least three adult on outflows
