On Thursday evening after work, a party of three Dunlin had arrived some time during the afternoon - they hadn't been there at 2:30pm per Alan S. They may have been a family group, comprising two adults and a juvenile.

This afternoon (25th), I received a text from Alan S saying that Kevin H had found a Turnstone on the spit. A short while later and I was watching a nice adult bird - the first since a juvenile in August 2012, so a nice year tick. A Black-tailed Godwit found in the morning was also still present.
So a bit of wader variety and very welcome.
There have been Yellow-legged Gulls present in varying ages almost every day recently. This adult bird was seen on Thursday 23rd.
