Waders to the fore

The routine coverage of ocean edge and the outfalls saw a decent collection of waders with just over 400 each of grey plover and bar-tailed godwit.

Also a single Sanderling amongst the hordes of calidrids (c3000 knot) and two black-tailed Godwit

Only 5 Med gulls could be located - all adults

Ringing saw a small influx of goldcrest and an even smaller influx of chiffchaff.   Odds and ends included single sedge warbler, green woodpecker and treecreeper

7 little egret ocean edge

520 redshank heliport seawall

Vis mig was unremarkable but included a Siskin (rare this autumn) and a flurry of 65 meadow pipit in 20 mins - more vis data to be added
