Thursday's visit to St Mary's Island was a cracker. I had never seen so many birds there at one time. Both bays held good variety and numbers of waders.
In all there were Golden Plover, Sanderling, Bar Tailed Godwit, Purple Sandpiper, Dunlin, Knot, Turnstone.

This Godwit was missing lower part of leg but it appeared to be getting about ok
