The group of nine met at the Beach Car Park with the clouds clearing. The tide was going out revealing more of the tidal stream allowing birds (redshank, herring, black headed and black backed gulls, godwit and teal) to feed. On the shoreline there were pied wagtail and jackdaw whilst on estuary side there were staring, curlew and little egrets. Moving west for two hundred metres we could see up a river channel with a small flock of redshank, a few godwits and a greenshank. Walking back east to the old dock area we were rewarded with sightings of meadow pipits, a grey wagtail, finches, a heron, house sparrows and linnets. Twenty six species were seen and all agreed that it had been a satisfying morning's walk and birdwatch before retiring to the café.
