Adur Estuary

I probably left it a bit late with the tide for some waders - it end up being a particularly high tide - but did see a Whimbrel, a Greenshank, three Snipe, two Ringed Plovers, 10 Oystercatchers, 30 Turnstones (mostly roosting on a boat), eight Dunlin and 36 Redshanks. Non-wader interest included two Yellow Wagtails on the main rec field with 20 Pied Wagtails, two unsettled Kingfishers, five Wigeon, four Teal, 17 Siskins and four Meadow Pipits overhead, 18 Swallows, a Sparrowhawk, 11 Little Egrets and four Grey Herons.
