At Cresswell a drake Garganey dropped in before appearing to head into the reeds in the south-west corner. Waders included 5 Ruff (3 very smart males), a Greenshank, a brief Whimbrel, Avocet and lots of Dunlin. 2 Little Gulls dropped in before heading off north to Druridge Pools. Also around the pond were Little Egret, White Wagtail and a singing Grasshopper Warbler at Druridge Pools.
Elsewhere in the bay the Goosander was again at East Chevington along with 5 Red-breasted Mergansers and a Mediterranean Gull flew over Druridge Pools. I missed a Manx Shearwater which my Dad saw flying south past Druridge Pools.
