Pretty quiet on Portland this morning - one Balearic Shearwater past on the sea, a few Whinchat and Wheatear around the fields - so spent much of the day at Ferrybridge waiting for the tide to push in a nice selection of waders. Sitting in the mud waiting for them to come to us seemed like a good plan, but we didn't bank on children (who can be forgiven) and blokes laden with fishing gear (who can't) from diligently walking past us to flush everything in sight. Still, passable images of a very buffy Curlew Sandpiper, a single Sanderling and a few Dunlin were obtained. Bar-tailed Godwit and many Ringed Plover also present.
