The snow has finally gone
At Oulton Broad, Mutford Lock it was low tide and consequently no Jack Snipe seen amongst the Redshanks, 3 Sanderling were seen. At Lake Lothing from the riverside, 4 Shag were seen, at one time 3 together. 3 Sanderling flew east along the river. At Hamilton Dock, 4 Sanderling were seen in the north east corner. A Ness Point walking north to the sea wall 100 yards from the Point, a group of waders included Turnstones, 3 Sanderling, 6 Purple Sandpipers and 1 Dunlin. They fed on the rocks while for a time the Dunlin slept. They eventually flew south to a groyne. walking back along the Point to the finger, a Sanderling flew past and settled on the ledge just feet away but was running right (south) the whole time. It eventually settled at the eastern most point feeding before flying south again.
