In addition to the 9 then 12 BLACK TERNS and single COMMON GREENSHANK and BLACK-TAILED GODWIT that I had earlier, Steve Blain, MJP and others also noted two drake GARGANEY, 4 DUNLIN and 6 HOBBIES in the area later during the day. There were also 4 'rattling' male LESSER WHITETHROATS in the scrub around the periphery
