Beach Reserve

22nd March 2011, Tuesday

At last a nice fog free morning to appreciate the low water shore, at least 150 Sandwich Tern were roosting and feeding waders included Bar-tailed Godwit, Dunlin, Grey Plover and Knot. A Common Hermit Crab provided additional interest, I think a Netted Dog-welk has provided the home for the crab. Also this morning 700 Golden Plover were roosting on Flat Beach and 165 Mediterranean Gull were on Ternery pool. At Lime Kiln a Little Ringed Plover passed overhead heading for Wader Pool.
