Survey Mega!!

No, not really. I did see a Black-headed Gull though. Truely awful. We recorded 9 species, Dunlin, Turnstone, Redshank, Curlew, Common Gull, Herring Gull, Shelduck, Ringed Plover and the aforementioned BHG's. Not only was there no diversity BUT they were almost all in less than double figures across 8 hours. Truely crap. A few singing Skylarks and a displaying male Reed Bunting provided light relief. Ho-hum...

Called in on the Rough-leg. Dipped. It was seen a few minutes after we left. We did catch up with a single distant Marsh Harrier plus a small group of Avocets. Rest was standard.

Tomorrow its another day. Fingers crossed for a bit more success.
