  1. Black Red commuted between sail sheds and Hide and back, before mid afternoon flight across to F1 water extraction tower. 4 Mipits on causeway before the littoralis race Rockit appeared as photographed by Roger Wyatt. This is a poorly marked individual; with another stunningly marked bird being far greyer, having much larger supercillium and a pinkish breast. Last seen by Roger on Tues evening and first seen a week last Sunday by Ben and myself, plus Dai in between. Also 200 Lapwing and 150 Golden Plover over Pinkhill. The Little Gull is an adult in non-breeding plumage. 2 Sand Martins in afternoon.
