The Pool looked quite full yesterday with a few more Canada Geese arrivals swelling up the resident wildfowl and gull stocks.
Nothing unusual was spotted so we drove to the top car park .
The tide was way out exposing a whole line of rocks ...I had high hopes of some waders picking around the shoreline.
A lone Oystercatcher was seen in the distance but flew off towards Spit Beach.
Sinking half a foot a stride in the gooey mess with only a lone Rock Pipit and a sprinting Dunlin to reward our endeavours we decided to try Spit Beach.
To reach the beach entails a long walk alongside the Imery's Harbour Works past a golf course to the right before reaching the beach which is rather secluded and probably only used by the locals and odd birdwatcher in the know.
Scanning the sea and shoreline we saw up to thirty Oystercatchers, Sandwich Terns, Cormorant, Shag and the common Gulls but all really a little too far away for good photographs but we did manage to get some record shots .
