Wash Wading continued (again).

Above: The keeping area

Above: A knot being released (they hung around for about 20 seconds before flying off).

Above: The back of a summer plumage Dunlin (there are two distinct races & you can tell from the feathers at the bottom of their back which race they are from - I forget which is which!).

Above: The tide retreated rapidly and in the distance you can see two things (a ship wreck) and on the tide line, a mass of feeding wading birds (1000's).

Above: The WWRG.
