Avocets and other waders

20th February 2012, Monday

A walk from Rye to Northpoint this afternoon produced a good variety of waders on the river mud, including my first four Avocets of the year, two each of Bar-tailed and Black-tailed Godwits and a Grey Plover, as well as the usual Curlew, Redshank and Dunlin. The gull flock on the main lake included a Med Gull with a partial black hood.
