Guillemot - 1
small waders - three flocks totalling 30
Common Scoter - just one distant flock of c20

Shag - 2CY on wooden jetty

Greylag - 7 circled Middleton NR

At least three Black-tailed Skimmer Middleton

** I know there is a backlog for pics.  I wont be able to do anything about it tomorrow, I'm afraid, so if you can add your own pics or send them with relevant date they need posting to
