Failed ratch around the Solway

I want to find something good, with all these american waders around there has to be more than just an AGP up here. Trouble is theres no good wader habitat ANYWHERE. This is what i managed today.
Started at Port Carlisle, Still 300+ Golden Plover but still not viewable as they roost behind a sandbank.
In the Harbour,1 Ruff and adult winter Spotted Redshank, 10 Black tailed Godwit, 17 Bar-tailed Godwit and a Drake Scaup. 80-100 Knot circled the harbour before disappearing.
Opposite north plain entrance small flock of Dunlin with a few Ringed plover and a juvenile Curlew Sandpiper.
On the Roadside scrape there were plenty of Common Snipe and a single Greenshank. A Northern Wheatear was in the grass
South of Anthorn in a flooded field looked good 7 Ruff 50+ Teal and 70 Golden plover. lots of lapwing.
At Abbeytown 1 Ruff with Gulls and Lapwing.
Flood north of Allonby, 30 Teal and 6 Wigeon..
Generally a good movement of Pink-footed geese, Meadow Pipits and Swallows, Sandmartins and House Martins.
