06/03/12 Bran Sands - 48 Bar Tailed Godwit, 6 Knot, 6 Dunlin, 1 Sanderling.
South Gare shore - 12 Bar Tailed Godwit, 30 Knot, 110 Oystercatcher, 5 Dunlin, 40 Purple Sandpiper, 8 Redshank. Also near the road - 48 Snow Buntings ( several ringed ), 5 Twite, 6 Reed Bunting. Near the cabins were several Skylark & Linnet calling. Twite were near the railings were the road access finishes. Two on the railings were very confiding, calling constantly so very good for ID.
Also just off A19 going south in a wooded valley was a group of 12 Herons in the tree tops, presume its the local breeding spot ...
