Nearly but not quite

I had the high tide at Goldcliff Pools all to myself this evening, was hoping for something exciting, didn't quite happen. Even when the Grey Phalarope disappeared from St. Brides it didn't have the decency to come my way. A bit of cloud cover did make viewing conditions reasonable though and the waders that were present included: 3 Avocet, 62 Ringed Plover, 245 Knot, 2 juvenile Curlew Sandpiper, 245 Dunlin, 55 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 juvenile Bar-tailed Godwit, 3 Spotted Redshank and 5 Greenshank. And that was about it. The end.
