Just singles of redshank, greenshank, common sandpiper with dunlin was about it. I note from Collins that next to an image of redshank they have added "vociferous" this one was. Also present 3 members of the motorised division of the Welsh 'we are not doing any harm' Brigade these chaps being ably supported, in absentia, by the 'lets buy a pony, stick it on the mountain and let it starve to death' Brigade, well done, your country is proud of you. The mares have recently foaled and are now in season hence, being pursued across the common by stallion(s), do not get in their way.
Moths, do not ask, but chocolate tip was worth getting up for.
