11th August - an early afternoon visit was slightly more productive than normal in that a Black-tailed Godwit was present amongst the Black-headed Gull flock on the spit. It spent most of its time whilst I was there either asleep or partially hidden within the gulls, but I did manage some record shots. It was an adult, but in heavy moult, and only had a few retained summer scap feathers. Not much else seen in a fairly quick visit and only viewing from the western bank.
