Three Avocets arrived at the Dams early this morning, staying all day; three Ruff arrived soon after, but were soon on their way. At least five each of Green and Common Sandpiper and a single Shoveler were also there. On the sea, three Little Gulls and plenty of waders (especially Knot and Sanderling) were on the move, and a flock of up to 500 Common Scoters off Primrose Valley included a drake Velvet Scoter.
