An evening watch overlooking the exposed mudflats of No 6 tank was well rewarding with 7 juvenile and 2 adult Curlew Sandpiper, 4 adult Little Stint, 50 Dunlin, 154 Ringed Plover and 5 Ruff. During the course of the evening a female Ruddy Shelduck joined up with the Common Shelduck present there.
Other species worthy of attention were 3 Pochard, 43 Tufted Duck, 540 Common Teal, Marbled Duck and a single Black-necked Grebe.
A male Sparrowhawk and a female Marsh Harrier gave fine views.
