I went back to Thornside, and in the strong afternoon sunshine was able to
determine that the 3 birds I had been looking at yesterday were great knots. 
They were loafing in a flock of godwits, and more closely resembled their mug
shots in the field guides than they did feeding in the low light yesterday. 
Mind you, I still think the GK bills are longer than indicated in the guides.

There were at least a dozen golden plover types about, but conditions weren't
great for the waders with optimistic fisherman disturbing their roosts.

Regards, Laurie.
