A walk around the spit proved uneventful. Only 16 Brent geese from the hide (more Shelducks than Brent), a few Grey Plovers, Dunlin and Turnstone and the whole harbour looked deserted compared to recent weeks and before I was away for a few days in Suffolk. The Red Breasted Merganser that spent last summer here is still around and most of her associates have gone except one male I saw flying up channel.
