18th August

An horrendous day with a blazing westerly wind and driving rain - the term 'unbirdable' was thrown around on a regular basis; we did get out though and birds we managed to see included more new ducks with 14 Wigeon and three Gadwall new alongside the Mallard, Teal and Shoveler and another influx of waders with 24 Black-tailed Godwits, 125 Ringed Plover and 165 Dunlin noteworthy.   The Pectoral Sandpiper was still on Ancum and there were two Common Terns sheltering at the north end - an adult and a juvenile.
