The Twite flock were again around the car park at Thornham Harbour, regularly coming into drink and bathe in the puddles there. A Spotted Redshank was in the tidal creek and a Greenshank flew over the grazing marsh calling early afternoon.
Two of the Twite flock, the colour ringed individual a male, ringed in Yorkshire in December 2016.
