On walking round the first bird heard was a overhead Brambling, it then got better when I saw it land, managed to get off a couple of distant photo’s. On arrival at the waters edge, heard a Rock Pipit briefly and then got onto a group of 3 Grey Wagtails.
Despite a thorough search through the Gulls on the river could not find anything of note other than the usual Lessers, Herrings and Black Headed Gulls. Single Common and 3 Great Black Backs were seen.
