Myself and Johannes Fischer observed an adult little egret in partial breeding plumage today amongst the godwits and stilts. It was rather approachable and didn’t seem too phased by people.
Also observed were:
6 barwits one flagged BEZ
1 red knot with a transmitter (sorry Phil!) flagged ECB
6 banded dotterels
One white fronted tern
3 caspian tern

The egret was still around last weekend, hanging out right by the walkway.
