The endless ebb and flow

Another high-tide, another few hours at Goldcliff. A juv Wood Sandpiper feeding on the back of Lagoon 3 (viewable from the sea wall) was the best of it; 3 Turnstone, 2 Knot, 2+ Greenshank plus Whimbrel and Yellow Wagtails provided the support. Nothing of note at Boat Lane.

Not looking his best. Heavy moult and a wind up the jacksie never did anyone any favours.

PS. The hides are appearing like mushrooms, one and a half down/up, one to go.
