Jury's Gap Shore

A quick look at the beach and sea at jury's gap produced 3 Ringed Plover, a few Grey Plover and Oystercatchers, and about 6 Bar-tailed Godwits, some of which were in their brick red breeding plumage. 2 Sandwich Terns were on the beach and groups of terns went by, but the tide was low so they were very distant. There was clearly a lot moving about at sea. Some darker birds which were moving about at varying distances may have been Common Scoter. They appeared to have white patches on their undersides so may be 1st summer birds.
