After yesterday's rain I wasn't alone in thinking that there may be some action out there today. As it turned out the patch was like a 20 year marriage, it hinted at better days with the occasional flash of a white arse. 16 white arses in total; five between the railway line and the west paddock and 11 on the moor.
A short sea-watch added Little Tern to the patch year list and three Red-throated Divers were still catching crabs in the breakers. A single Tufted Duck roosting on the sea with Common Scoters was slightly incongruous.
