    Egret roost count from Causeway Hide. 28 little egrets and 2 great whites left in a melee at 7.26. Must have been some form of disturbance though source not discernible (25 minutes before sunrise). Long-tailed duck visible in front of Lower Hide. 2 otters through in front of Causeway Hide, one of which briefly pulled out on the horizontal wooden perch in front of the hide.
    Later visit to Allen Hide included kingfisher, 6 dunlin, 1 spotted redshank, 7 greenshank, 5 goosander, 3 snipe, marsh harrier and merlin.
