The CB Shelduck was showing well on the northern end of the main pond this afternoon.
3 FE Curlew and 2 Asiatic Whimbrel on the main shellbank.
Godwit numbers up to 3700, including 1 juvenile, Knot 1900.
just after 6pm there was a small flight of 21 Godwit and 10 Knot that rose out of the flock migrating almost due south, so they obviously briefly staged at Miranda before heading south.
