    2 Common Tern fishing
    300 Dunlin with 48 Ringed Plover at low water am. now refuelled and gone.
    A/M today first of flood tide a feeding frenzy with lots of gulls in two places feeding on what I suspect would be Sprats and Whitebait, if correct the Common Terns will have plenty to fish for.
    Glasson Marsh from S/Pt
    42 Eider
    13 Crows
    225 Gulls
    Lapwing and Oystercatcher I think were nesting from previous observations, these recent high tides will have washed out the nests, if not what chance with the above scouring the marsh, predation problems are now massive.
    3 Brown Hares.
