Early morning on the beach before the dog-emptying masses arrive
Reed buntings are still there in good numbers with at least eight singing males, chaffinches and meadow pipits were numerous, the latter being very difficult to record accurately in the dunes. Other highlights included a water rail, shooting out of a ditch and six collared doves (four at the hamlet and two at High Chibburn Farm).

Interestingly there were only two singing male wrens and no willow warblers...yet!
