Rich roast time led me to the firth hide which showed 2 grey plover. A drive up to denge where the great white egret was still showing, 3 marsh harriers, and 3 kestrels. Loads of yellow wags around, one report noted 200! After another rich roast I ventured back to ARC as the tide was now up, on the way saw 2 stonechat and 1 sparrowhawk. Hanson hide showed most as seen earlier except no little stint. A sparrowhawk flew past the hide 3 times so close I'm sure I could have caught it if I stuck my hand out. 2 dunlin tried to hide unsuccessfully amongst the plover and 3 garganey were noted.
An unusual trip to the beach ensued for a quick sea watch which was well worth it as on arrival there was a line of 10 spoonbills flying over. Other birds of note were gannets, common and sandwich terns, 2 skuas, common scoters, 1 unidentified auk (too far out) and at least 3 porpoises.
Count for the day 60
