Wader count

This morning I met up with Paul Hawkins at Cold Harbour Lane where we were part of the London Birders high tide count, before we started the wander count we had a quick look at the bushes and 100 Meters after the barrier Paul refound the wintering Ring Ouzel on the fence.After some record shots we made our way to the Stone Barges to start the count and we had some good numbers of the following : 196 Black tailed godwit , 371 Dunlin , 60 Redshank, 2 Jack Snipe , 5 Common Snipe, Common Sand, Grey Plover, and a Buzzard but I missed the Smew on the river to the delight of Paul and Dave MO. Some times you can't see every thing......
