The tide came in at about 9:30pm or so that evening. it was raining. About an hour before high tide there are hundreds of waders feeding on the sandbanks in Morecambe Bay. The tide gradually pushes them off, and they often leave in large groups, sometimes coming further inland; sometimes going back out to the next sandbank that will soon also be inundated.
On this recording we have:
- curlew, crow, gulls, knot, redshank, the train, and the sound of the tide coming in over the flat Morecombe sands and its many complex rivulets.
