With the high tide came the waders, with numbers similar to previous days, however yesterdays Little Stint had moved on.
A few late (ish) Sandwich Tern lingered amongst thee Gull flock which in itself provided some interest including 1 adult Yellow Legged Gull, 1 Argentatus and another that left us a little head scratching. One for gull watchers. Some think Yellow Legged, some Caspian, others haven't a clue. Interesting never the less.
At 'Greenshank Groyne' a lone Black tailed Godwit took up temporary residence. Not too common at this site.
Further west a single Black tern was on the tide edge just east of Hilbre
