Turnstones

A very pleasant walk at high tide along the crowded seafront from the Stade to Bexhill yesterday produced little evidence of migration [as I failed to notice the passing Spoonbill !].

But when passing the long rock sea defence barrier at Bulverhythe, I heard Turnstones calling from the waters edge, out of sight of all those using the coast path. Peering cautiously over the edge I was pleased to see at least 180 Turnstones, the largest flock I have seen in the area, and the only ones I saw on this walk. There was 1 Dunlin with them, and further along at Glyne Gap a Grey Plover was on the beach.
