It was very quiet walking through the Hawthorn scrub and I didn't record anything of note. A quick look on the freshwater pools revealed four Grey Herons (including one on the estuary), 13 Tufted Ducks, including a female with a brood of six young, six Little Grebes, 23 'hawking' House Martins and a single Buzzard flew overhead.
It was very quiet on the estuary with very few waders other than Curlews and Redshanks. The Common Sea-lavender was in full flower and it was as if there was a blue haze shimmering above the saltmarsh. Walking back I had five Stock Doves and I decided to call it a day.

It will be more Swallows from me tomorrow as fingers crossed we will be able to ring some more.
