It was a beautiful afternoon with clear blue skies and lovely late Autumn sunshine,a real corker of an afternoon. The tide was at low level so everything was very far out on the mudflats except for three small waders close to the bridge area. Closer inspection revealed there were two Dunlin and the third was a Curlew Sandpiper which was a real bonus and a photo opportunity not to be missed.
I also managed to see the white fronted goose although it was to far out for images(maybe I will have to give digiscoping a try again).
Also had a nice Bar-Tailed Godwit up close and I have also included this in tonight's post.
Many times when fishing from the cliffs back in the 1960's an 70's these guys would sweep past see us and turn and come back and hover just offshore, you gave the winch man a thumbs up he would do the same and they would continue their patrol.
