The new fence hasn’t been put to good use as yet but to make at least some use of it we have started a ‘fence’ list, including this shot of oystercatchers taken by Paul. It doesn’t take much to keep us happy!

    Hi Pete. I know what you mean. I dont know if Paul told you but Me Erich and Martin Lonsdale had the Whooper 310513 along with two little Egret, 45 Tundra Ringed Plover and a Dunlin.
    The two little Egrets showed again today also, as did a Bar-tailed Godwit and one Avocet out on the sands.

    Cheers.
