1100 - 1300 visit had a minimum of 77 Avocets (two colour ringed birds). Up to about 2,750 Black-tailed godwit with up to a dozen bar-tailed thrown in and carefully hidden. One showing some summer plumage. Up to 200 Knot including one at 50% summer plumage. Also mostly summer plumaged dunlin.

Highlight has to be a fully summer plumage Spotted Redshank. Terrible record shot attached.
