Spent the morning over high tide walking from RGW to the farm and back . Best of the bunch was a Short Eared Owl – flew to the saltmarsh just passed the marker stones . Also 1 Wheatear , small movement of Meadow Pipits, 3 Skylarks and at least 500 Starlings plus a couple of singing Cettis.

Good numbers of ducks , at least 300 Shelduck but probably a lot more along the whole walk . Wigeon , Pintail , Teal and Shoveler also present .

Waders seen were Oyks , Curlew , Redshank , Snipe (2) and Lapwing (84) .

Also of interest , 1 each of Kestrel, Sparrowhawk, Buzzard and 3 Little Egret . 48 species in total.
