Shoreham/Adur Estuary. 13.11.21. Greenshank

On Saturday I went to Shoreham to go on a guided walk along the river with the Shoreham and District Ornithology Society, of which I am a member. The walk was from 10.00-12.00. I got to Shoreham (by bus) at 9.00, and bird watched solo; and I di some more bird watching on my own after the guided walk had finished


I saw a Greenshank, Redshanks, Herring Gulls, Blackhead Gulls, Great Black Backed Gulls, Little Grebes, Cormorants, Mallards, Turnstones, Oystercatchers, a Grey Plover, a Peregrine Falcon, a Kingfisher, Little Egrets, Mallards, and some Lapwings (not photographed)
