So you can probably tell i had a tough day on the Solway birding from Allonby to Port Carlisle.
Highlights if that's what ya wanna call em were 2 Med gulls opposite the mast at Anthorn. 2nd Summer and an Adult. Adult green ringed but 1km away so couldn't read the ring, but my guess would be a returning bird.

Walked the wampool up river from Anthorn, NOWT!
Eventually got to the railings after checking lots of other areas to find 45 Summer plum Knot, 15 Summer Plum Icelandic Black-tailed Godwit and another Adult Med gull, it was always sat down asleep so never got to see its legs.Handful of Dunlin and Ringed plover.

Finished at Port for high tide, very few Redshank came into roost and went straight for the back of the island. 1 Bar-tailed Godwit was the pick of the bunch here.
I'm sorry to say it was the most appalling day for photos too, but for a blog these will have to do...
