Remember there being a Scaup Face Tufted around a couple of years ago.....yes I saw the little tuft as well when I blew it up further......wish I had the bird at the time...I would have followed it and looked through my little scope.

Green Sandpiper on left shoreline of Lower today with a pair of Grey Wagtails on shore or in and around the reeds.

G.C.Grebes are trying their luck on the right side of Mill Shrub after an aborted try on the left when either the water rose or something pulled it apart.

I'd say LRP from what I saw, but if anyone's able to confirm it would be welcome.

Good to meet you, Keith.

After 4 hours on the causeway road we managed to confirm....
1 Green Sandpiper
2 Oystercatchers...one flew off to Upper and Josh picked the other on up on the far shore.
5 Little Ringed Plover...Josh again found No 5.

A nice end to the day from a bad morning.

Sorry loads of crap pics following.....
