Sorry I don't know what happened to the rest of the message. I'll try to remember it, something like:

About 16.30 today on a rising tide, Bare seafront was bare.

In 15 years of visits I don't think I have ever seen it completely empty at that stage of the tide, but it was on Thursday. There were a couple of collared doves, a crow and a sparrow but no shorebirds.

Further along at Scalestones there were 1 shelduck, 6 eider and a great crested grebe on the sea and 2 curlew, 2 whimbrel and 13 oystercatchers on the groyne.

I have now worked out what went wrong with the original message because it happened again with this one. After the word Bare I had put a line of dots before continuing. Apparently that obliterates the rest of the message.

Today Friday about 18.30 the sand/gravel of Bare beach held, I estimate, over 200 dunlin and about 100 ringed plover. I tried an accurate count but they kept flying round so I gave up.

Nothing on the sea. 2curlews at Scalestones with 24 oystercatchers but no whimbrel.

Happy Mount Park saw 1 blackcap male and heard another.
