Avocets and Black-tailed Godwits  

Back surveying on the south bank of the Humber on (another) very windy day, and the numbers of several species sheltering in a favoured area were exceptional - in a small area of saltmarsh, mud and (construction-protected) open water, dense, swirling flocks of birds included over 3,000 Lapwings and over 2,300 Teal, as well as hundreds of Curlews, Black-tailed Godwits and other wintering regulars.
