A WeBS count day. I met Ian at Inchmery Quay at just after 8:30am. WeBS highlights included 900 Dunlin, 275 Knot and a single Golden Plover in with the 190 Grey Plover.

On the sea there were three Slavonian Grebes and two Razorbills and at Rye Errish (Park Lane) a Firecrest was in the garden of Errish House again. The Pale-bellied Brent Goose was with the large Brent Goose flock in the fields to the north east of Park Farm.

Back at Shore Hide a ringtail Hen Harrier was found by Nigel which he put us on to as he was leaving. It drifted out of the river mouth flying purposefully west along the shoreline but gradually getting more distant as it headed out towards the Isle of Wight.
