Wader quiz

How many Knot do you think there are in this photo?

In fact there are 450.  Now have a guess at how many there are in the photo below:

I haven't counted these individually so your guess is as good as mine!  This isn't the whole flock that were roosting on the heliport as another the same size was swirling about over the sea.  There were probably in the region of 3000 today plus 2000 or so Oystercatcher. 
Nothing much else to report at the moment.
