A check over the sea on the falling tide (1000-1100) produced 336 Sandwich Tern, 85 Common Scoter, 67 Manx Shearwater and 2 Arctic Tern..
Still little evidence of many grounded birds with just 2 Wheatear and a Willow Warbler logged.

Waders included 26 Greenshank and a Black-tailed Godwit amongst 950 Redshank and 1100 Dunlin, 220 Ringed Plover, 5 Golden Plover and a Whimbrel.
At least 22 Little Egret were the best of the rest.
