We then moved onto Saltholme pools where a Juv Black Tern showed well as did 4 Little Gulls, an Eclipse Drake Red Crested Pochard and a few Little Egret and Greenshanks. We finished at Seal sand but the tide was well in and the waders were hidden, 2 Ruff with the Redshank being it. As ever the Common Seals put on a good show.

Finished at Soddy Gap and Low Meadows, Low Meadows was the best with finally some birds on the flood. 2 Black-tailed Godwit looked like the Nominate Race 14 Teal 48 Mallard and nicely 3 Eclipse Shovelers.. Smaller birds were 3-4 Willow/chiff, Tree Sparrow, 2 Whitethroat with a 3rd on Soddy itself, Robin and a Yellowhammer.
