Very good day on patch - Axe Estuary

Well I wrote today's earlier post thinking that that would be it for the day, but instead I now have a new patch tick! Upon leaving BHM earlier, I met Clive as he was arriving. I reported that there was nothing of interest on BHM so he checked the estuary from Tower Hide and lo-and-behold there were 3 Goldeneye on the estuary! Wish I'd checked there now - would have rounded off a nice day of finds with a much better one. Well done to Clive - I think most of the locals saw them (I apologised to Tim Wright as a meeting at 17:30 was prohibitive of me taking him to see them). There was also a rather smart Yellow-Legged Gull from Tower Hide too; it wasn't a 1w bird for a change!
