|Plenty of waders on Marshside 1 from Nel's this morning.|

Otherwise the usual suspects included 2 Ruff in breeding finery, Avocets with chicks, 165 Black-tailed Godwits, plenty of Gadwall and a few Shoveler and single drake Pintail.
I left mid-morning as the birds took to the longer grass to preen and roost. No stints but they could easy be in the grassy tufts and hidden away. Nice to be birding on the estuary again; might go back later for some more.
