    7 Common Scoter (flying in, landing on the sea, then continuing into the Bay)
    1 Red-throated Diver (flying out)
    6 Razorbill (5 + 1 flying out)
    29 ‘auk sp’ (5 + 11 + 3 + 10 flying in very distantly)

    3 Sanderling (flying out)
    4 Sandwich Tern

    6 Spoonbill – asleep on the Eric Morecambe Pool, later split into 3 + 1 feeding and 2 asleep
    1 Great White Egret – south end of Barrow Scout Fields
    43 Avocet – mostly on the Allen Pool
    2 3rd CY Mediterranean Gull – Allen Pool
