The low tide was just right this morning being around midday, so I loaded the car up and headed for my favorite spot.
Sure enough the tide was out with about 1 and 1/2 hours to go for low water. The light was poor and the birds a little too far out but I was there.
Lots of Seagull (Black headed gulls), Black-tailed Godwits as well as a few Female Mallard. I did see a few Curlew feeding. I thought I could see some Redshanks but they were the Godwits.
The wind was cold for this time of the year but after about 20 minutes I went back to the car and got my Spotter scope. This how I was able to Identify some of the bird. As you will see bad light and being a way off did not help.
I know this is a Seagull but I can't see what type it is.

That's it for now, have a good weekend
