A beautiful morning and lots of birds to see but more for the scope than the camera.
On the estuary there were teal, ringed plovers and a curlew.

As well a very large flock of black-tailed godwits on the pools I had pointed out to me a spotted redshank and a couple of curlew sandpipers.
Between the estuary and the pools there were 30+ meadow pipits, half a dozen pied wagtails, a small flock of starlings, a wheatear and a stonechat.

Yet most of the birds were too far away for decent photos or into the sun and appearing in monochrome – all fun to see in the scope though.
