Sea "turf" wars and samphire

Light SSE breeze all day, the rain alternating between drizzle and quite heavy.

Red Nab to saltmarsh area - high water 10:15
First an update from yesterday, a check by Pete located:
Mediterranean gull 7 - 5 adult plus a 2nd and 1st calendar year 

Today (MD)
Little Egret 7
Grey Heron 1
Pink-Footed goose 16 low to south
Wigeon 87 - most on Red Nab
Mallard 6 - this is where the "turf wars" come from, the Mallard cleared away the few Wigeon that were out from the saltmarsh. Not sure why the Lesser Blacked-Backed gulls joined in, they probably thought the affray was over food.
