Not the highest of high tides at the pools over lunchtime, mind you, any birds that had been pushed onto the lagoons were kicked back off as the farmer rounded up his sheep just before high water. Two Knot on the tideline were the 'highlight' but a Common Sandpiper also hinted at passage, as did a few Black-tailed Godwit, Dunlin, etc. A few of the young waders seem to have made it, more-or-less full-grown young of Avocet, Oystercatcher and Redshank were all present.

One of the nibbling horde currently carpeting the turf behind the viewing platforms with hundreds of potential silent footsteps.
