Plenty shoreline showing now at the nw corner but understandably, in this heat, no waders.
Gull numbers are on the up as well as Lapwing but no Curlew today.
Only wildfowl were Mallard, Canada and 1pr Teal scoped in the far sw corner.
Overhead the skies were birdless courtesy of this endless heatwave.

c 600 Lesser Black Backed
c 400 Black Headed
7 Common gull
4 Herring gull but no Yellow Legged.
c 200 Starling
28 Lapwing
44 Canadas
6 Mallard + 8 young chicks.
