The Marsh Sandpiper was still there around noon. It was feding actively around the famous Embankment Road fence line
Also 4 banded dotterls but not mulch

PS You might have heard that gull-billed tern has been split-the Australaian one is different from Eurasia etc-an armchair tick for many of us. Ours is now

Gelochelidon macrotarsa
