White Dots

The 10 Glossy Ibis were late in this evening. They flew over Warren View and joined the river, close to Lower Halsdon Farm, at 1717. A flock of c80 Cattle Egrets flew into roost across the river at 1708. Otherwise this afternoon - the female Velvet Scoter showed a bit better off the seafront, flying around at one point and wing-flapping once settled (cheers for the text Mark). Nearby the 2 Black-necked Grebes were distantly off Shelly Beach (between Cockwood and Starcross) and 11 Red-breasted Mergansers were in Cockwood Corner. Off Mudbank - 16+ Sanderlings (on Cockle Sands), 70 Mallard, 7 Wigeon and 4 Pintail.

I count c80 white dots (Cattle Egrets). Easier to count (though still not exactly easy) with a photo.
