So minus 2 this morning at the Bay, arrived at 7:30am hoping to catch up with some more displaced duck on a rising tide, didn't really happen! plenty of waders though the highlight was a single Golden Plover, quite a rare bird this far up the Thames and didn't see one last year.

Other waders included 6 Grey Plover, 11 Curlew, c50 Redshank and good numbers of Dunlin which have become a more regular sighting feeding on this side of the river as normally favouring the cross-ness side, was also able to get quite close to these as the tide fell and they flew towards me feeding just yards away.

Also 8 Ringed Plover was a good count roosting on the jetty, and added L.T tit for the year list#61
