Most of the sand banks with gulls and shorebirds were much closer to the eastern shore south of the Wash. Viewing conditions were perfect in the morning. Afternoon viewing will likely be better from the western shore from the narrows area where Bob was this morning, although the birds will likely be farther away.

At 10:30 I scanned (looking into bright sun) the mud flats and saw two small gulls, both same size, both flew, they were Sabine's. A smaller gull could have been up there on other side and I simply missed it. Certainly best to view the area as the Nick, Phil and Sarah gang did.
