At 4.00 pm this afternoon I saw four Squacco Heron come in off the sea and land on low scrub/bare earth (no reed-beds here); they were absolutely knackered. I have only seen one other bird here in the past twenty years.

Hopefully they will be here in the morning for a "photo-call", but the weather is looking very "iffy" at the moment (thunder, rain and strong winds).

Supporting cast of two Gull-billed Terns and and an amazing 67 Little Terns, plus many hundreds of Knot and godwits (both) in breeding plumage.
