Not quite so local patch…

…FREISTON SHORE again, 28th aug.

Not many seabirds on a high tide seawatch, but a couple of gooduns. A black tern close inshore was followed by an arctic skua and then a small skua sp. that I’m confident was a long-tailed, juvenile.

3  thousand (est.) oystrcatchers on the lagoon was quite a sight and sound. About 200 turnstones were here, too. Lots of other waders around including whimbrel.

The pec sand was still on the reservoir, along with a little stint and a smart juvenile curlew sandpiper.

Other highlights included kingfisher and a couple of marsh harriers.
