    The largest number of Black Tailed Godwit I have ever witnessed on this roost, before high water they were flying in from all directions, my probable under estimation c3,500, it was a wonderful sight and sound.
    Several skeins of Pink Foot flying over,
    400 Curlew
    2,000 Oystercatcher
    6,000 Knot,
    Dunlin, Redshank, Wigeon, Grey Plover
    53 Swans on the water off Middleton Sands then took off flying NW unable to decide species, to far away.
    1 Peregrine
    1 Stoat on strand line then disappearing in to rushes then up the banking and down Rabbit holes, hyper active.
    Garden
    5 Tree Sparrows, a nice increase from the regular two

    What time were the swans Alan? There were Whoopers in that area late morning that left north west, I reckoned about 33. Surely Whoopers in any case going north west today.

    They were there from me first sighting them at 11am and flying at around 12 15ish, I would have guessed Whoopers.
