Unfortunately the tide was in but a few gull and cormorants were resting on the only piece of high ground. From the hide we did manage to see curlews, redshanks and little egrets. The more observant amongst us caught sight of a kingfisher and bearded tits. On the plus side there were lots of butterflies and dragonflies for us to identify with the help of Edwina and Alan and in no small way by David's hat.

Birds seen: cormorants, swallows, little egrets, blue tits, crows, black-headed gulls, lesser black-backed gulls, a kingfisher, wood pigeon, curlews, redshanks, bearded tits and a marsh harrier.

Butterflies seen: gatekeeper, red admiral, speckled wood and large white.

Dragonflies seen: common darter, ruddy darter, southern hawker and migrant hawker.
