Kinneil Lagoons 0830 -1130 hrs
At least 67 Black-tailed Godwit, c.200 Lapwing, c.120 Dunlin, c.140 Redshank and a Greenshank on the lagoons, birds were very restless due to the attempts of a Peregrine to have them for lunch, one Redshank had a very narrow escape when the Peregrine knocked it into the water but it managed to take off and evade the Peregrines talons.

Skinflats 1200 - 1330 hrs
A Greenshnk, a juvenile Ruff, c.100 Curlew, c.200 Lapwing, c. 150 Dunlin, 27 Redshank, 8 Goldeneye, 8 Greylag, c.100 Teal, 7 Mallard and a Shelduck were present on the lagoon's, this time it was a female Sparrowhawk causing some panic.

Also had good views of 3 Roe Deer running past me (see images below).
