Seems they've gone. Same stage of tide as when 500+. A few on the bank before it arrived, and only 26 floating on it, when one gets the maximum count.

Thanks go to Pete Crooks for today's header photo of Aldcliffe. If you have a suitable picture of a local birding spot, why not send it to the webmaster, at andymccafferty@gmail.com? I need to resize (and if necessary crop) pictures to make them 600x130 pixels, so ideally send it at that size (definitely not smaller).
