Some lively weather for the WeBS count today.
Ardivachar beach was dominated by gulls: c950 herrings, 44 greater black-backs, 16 black-headeds. Also, c400 bar-tailed godwits, 6 snipes, 20 purple sandpipers, 1 curlew, 21 turnstones, 23 ringed plovers, 22 oystercatchers, 40 sanderlings, 3 eiders, 1 common scoter, 25 cormorants, and 3 whooper swans.
Very little in North Bay which was a surprise as it has the most shelter from the westerlies.
