Seawall - 20 avocet, 5 grey plovers, shelduck, oystercatchers, 60 dunlin, gt b b gull,curlew and 61 redshanks. Hide 3 - good number of Canada geese with 5 white-fronted geese that dropped in later (2 looking very smart with black banding on the belly's and a good extent of white at the top of the bill), and 2 barnacle geese in with the Canada's. Large numbers of shoveler and wigeon but as we were about to do a count (0840) the glossy ibis burst up from the large patch of reeds, flew low over the ducks and spooked everything before heading off towards the wetlands site. 5 tufted ducks seen also. Approaching the seawall at dawn there was a possible call from 2 twite overhead but could be located or heard again so putting this down as a possible only.
