Taking the Walney lead, a short early morning RTD watch was made from the north harbour wall on the dropping tide.

North harbour wall
Red-throated Diver - one 'in' and a further 3 sat distantly on the water during a brief long-range scoping session off the NHW in the early morning
Twite - 5 at the sandworks

Red Nab/Stage 2 outfall
Little Egret - one in the channel along the seaward edge of Red Nab - visible from seawall but not OE foreshore. Rarer than Yellow-browed Warbler here!
Little Gull - 1st W seaward end of Stage 2 outfall at low tide
Twite - 25 feeding in tidal debris at Red Nab, at least 8 unringed birds and several ringed birds from the other day.
