Saltholme and Beyond.

We went for a walk around Saltholme and then onto Greatham Creek and to Seal Sands hide early evening.  Had excellent views of a Ruff and Snipe at Saltholme and could not believe how many Redshank were on Seal Sands from the hide along with large numbers of Curlew and Oystercatcher, a few Dunlin and 1 Grey Plover.
