An extremely peaceful walk at lunchtime, until a couple turned up with 4 barking dogs...

A nice flock of 26 pale-bellied Brents and a single lone adult dark-bellied Brent as the tide came in.  Compared to the last few weeks lots of gulls around, including at least 75 Great Black-backs but not a single Skokholm ringed bird, which would normally be expected.  In amongst the Herrings present we did pick up 3 Skokholm ringed adults and this presumed argentatus raced bird.

Still 3 sinensis Cormorants present, 1 on the lagoon and 2 sitting on an island in the river.
