Sheer dredgery

Spent another 1.5 hours watching the dredger go in and out of the harbour.

An ebbing tide and a strong offshore wind are obviously not the conditions conducive to seawatching - just one Sandwich Tern in. Not sure whether you can count the 100 Black-headed Gulls which also flew into the Bay.

The vis was little better:

Swallow 8
Swift 2
Linnet 1
Lesser Redpoll 1

On the sea:
5 Mute Swans (mum, dad and the kids).

Leighton Moss - 4 Black Terns, Curlew Sandpiper, 2 spotted Redshank.
Borwick Waters - 1 Black Tern
