Kingsbridge Estuary

Curlew Drive - Charleton Marsh, 13:45-16:15, low tide.

26 Brent Geese ( all adults, low count so hopefully a lot more elsewhere on estuary ), 3 Shoveler, 25 Pintail, 12 Tufted Duck ( good record ), 5 Goldeneye, 3 Great Northern Divers ( 2 off Curlew Drive, 1 near Saltstone, the latter slid its way up onto the mudflats a couple times ), 5 Great Crested Grebe, Little Grebe, Greenshank, 4 Bar-tailed Godwits and a Kingfisher. Good numbers of Dunlin not counted but may have been getting near a thousand.
