Spit Beach

Report. Phil Ouless  6th September 2011

I was at Spit Beach at about 4 o`clock this afternoon, about 3 hours after high water. There were 4+ Oystercatchers present, 3 Little Egrets & a Curlew near the harbour. On rocks just west of the beach were 8 Turnstones, 6 Ringed Plovers, 3 Dunlins, 2 Knot & 1 Bar Tailed Godwit. Once the dog walkers had vacated the beach, the waders came down to feed & I got some entertaining views of the Turnstones rummaging through the seaweed along the strand line. The Godwit fed slightly higher up the beach. Several Gannets were also visible out in the bay.

A nice collection of waders Phil. Thank you for the report.
