17th July

A Spotted Flycatcher and a Collared Dove were new migrant landbirds, but most of the day's birding interest was again focussed on the increasing flocks of waders. The most notable were 4 Common Sandpipers near the pier, while counts of other species came to 702 Golden Plovers, 382 Oystercatchers, 187 Turnstones, 181 Lapwings, 102 Dunlins, 87 Redshanks, 18 Bar-tailed Godwits, 6 Knots, 6 Purple Sandpipers and 4 Whimbrels.
