A good WeBS count on the high tide at 09:44 hrs revealed a good variety of wildfowl including 94 Grey Plover, 66 Ringed Plover, 650 Bar-tailed Godwit, 19, 600 Knot and a huge count of 4450 Oystercatchers - way more than twice the number I've ever counted at the Gore Point roost in over 10 years of counting. Elsewhere the avian highlight was a count of 3 Curlew sandpipers on the pools, where at least 20 Black-tailed Godwits and 2 Ruff were also present. Trifid Bur-marigold was in flower on the grazing marsh.
