I can see Ruddy Shelduck and Stilts among others in the last shot. And a heron. The rest is probably some ducks and gulls.

This was the only place we birded this day and we were above the area. ¤ of the guys went down but my foot was bleeding so I could not. It was not easy either in the sand to get down.
This place is rather close to the Atlantic Ocean but with no connections to it or any river. It is groundwater down there.
