At least ten hobbies could be seen hunting over Hooker’s pits and Denge Marsh and a buzzard flew over the ARC site mid-morning. Two little stints and a sanderling, all in summer plumage, were at the east end of the ARC pit and a green sandpiper was on Denge Marsh. Two avocets were seen from the Visitor Centre.
