More Jack Snipe but no Black Redstart

Ocean Edge
Low pressure and wind meant the tide was a lot higher than the 9.32 it was supposed to be.
The salt marsh was almost fully covered at 10.45, with almost an hour of the tide to run.
34 Snipe plus 2 Jack Snipe counted.
Middleton NR
A Little Egret, 40 teal, 3 little grebe, 3 snipe, one meadow pipit
No sign of Black Redstarts in very windy conditions.
