Not exactly buzzin'

Another day, another high tide at Goldcliff. The only 'anomaly' in the 55 strong Dunlin flock was a Sanderling. Elsewhere 1 Knot, 2 Greenshank and 2 LRP were almost noteworthy and one of the colour-ringed godwits is still present whilst 3 Wheatears, a couple of Yellow Wagtail and a few hirundines were the sum of the passerine movement. Also had Painted Lady ovipositing on the Creeping Thistle alongside the third platform and 3 helicopters, 1 light aircraft and a military jet overhead.
