On arrival at 08.25 at Bare seafront it looked as if it was another empty beach (fairly low high tide today). Then we spotted a few white blobs on a little island still to be engulfed by the rising tide. Scoping this I found the "few" were 71 ringed plovers and 248 dunlin. The tide began to push some of them off, and another mixed flock of perhaps a hundred birds flew by towards Scalestones. Some of these then flew back and about 40 landed and joined those already counted, so I totally lost track of just how many of each there were.

2 great crested grebes still on the sea.

1 blackcap in the Park - foliage now very thick and making it difficult to see much beyond woodpigeons and blackbirds, and definitely less singing now although the blackbirds still seem to be in full throat.
