In the early evening, walking 200 yards past the Humberstone farm, another Broad- Billed sandpiper, seen slightly closer than the previous individual and in better light, this time this bird was a better marked individual on the edge of the mud on the Suffolk side just south of the channel. It was just left of 3 sunken posts and feeding with a Dunlin, Ringed Plover and nearby were 2 Bar- tailed Godwit. It spent most of its time feeding along the edge of the mud the split supercilium was seen well.
