On the warmest day of the year high tide brought in 700 Black-tailed Godwit, a (very confused) male Ruff looking like a short-legged godwit was observed defending an abandoned Coot egg? 2 Little Ringed Plover and a drake Garganey which always adds an exotic touch to the proceedings, all were on No.6 tank.
Earlier in the day there was no sign of the Avocet chicks but two very animated adults would suggest that they were being led the short distance to the river and relatively safer conditions away from the gulls and crows?
Observers Paul Crawley (and upper images), Frank Duff, John Gilbody (and lower image).
