I arrived late after oversleeping but managed to catch up with all the birds that had already been seen. This included a flock of Avocet on the sea behind the lake, 3 Greenshank and at least 3 Water Rails on the lake and a few Snipe there as well.
We then proceeded to walk around the reserve with the best birds being 1 male and 2 female Bearded Tits, a couple of Buzzards, a distant Peregrine, Rock Pipit by the southern sea wall and plenty of waders in the high tide roosts.
I then popped over to Broadmarsh to try and see if the Long-tailed Duck was still present on the sewage farm ponds but I couldn't find it. There were 3 Green Sandpipers there.
Onward then to Hayling Oyster beds but despite the large numbers of waders there was little of note except 3 Goldeneye and a few Red-breasted Mergansers. No sign of any Black-necked Grebes
