The loss of the sand martin colony in the causeway banks was the main issue for birders.
French birders had seen one Great snipe displaying from 19.00 till 19.30.
Speaking to other birders on the trip this did not seem too unusual.
We met some local birders and they showed us a raptor perched on a dead tree to the east of the dike.
Yes, this is where birders were being robbed at gunpoint in the late ' 90s.
