Friday 23 December. Tried Adur saltings by the houseboats at high tide and the Adur by the airport at low tide. The weather was poor on both occassions despite being brighter during the day. The high tide was only high enough to reveal just one snipe with an adult Mediterranean Gull and Kingfisher the only notable sightings. The low tide was just after dark and pre-roost gulls were particularly jumpy. The biggest flock, including 80 Lesser Black-backs, was north of the footbridge opposite Ricardo's. Low tides are now in darkness until the end of the month.
