There are also loads of other waders too, especially in the high tide roost - testament to the ferocious power of nature, waders use rocks dredged up by the Boxing Day tsunami to roost on (as well as the more conventional sandbar). 40 or so Terek Sandpipers, loads of Lesser and Greater Sand Plovers (much more straightforward identification wise than watching the two species in Kuwait two winters ago - race differences in Lesser are remarkable!), 100+ Pacific Golden Plovers, a few Red-necked Stints as well as commoner stuff like Whimbrel, Bar-tailed Godwit, Turnstone and Grey Plover. Really enjoyable wadering in a quiet and remote setting.
