I should have been packing for my hols but instead sneaked off back to Ferry Lane. I am lovin' it there at the moment. It was the highest tide I have ever seen there. There were no rocks clear of the water and the birds either perched on flotsam or conveniently on the sea wall. Two female and a one male Black Redstarts remain as well as Grey Wagtail and Common Sandpiper, plus dozens of Teal, a small number of Gadwall, 2 Pied Wagtails, one Great Crested Grebe, dozens of Mallards and a million Black Headed Gulls.
