Green sandpiper puts on a good show

A walk around the patch with Jenny early afternoon and it was much the same as yesterday with the exception of around 450 pinkfeet on Aldcliffe Marsh.
Freeman's Pools - 6 shoveler, 5 wigeon & 3 gadwall were the wildfowl highlights.
A little egret was flying over the marsh and there were still 50 or so greylag near Bank Pool while the bulk of the birds (c200) were by the Wildfowlers' Pools. A green sandpiper was showing well here, as viewed from the gate on the cycle track.
40ish fieldfare and a few redwing were in hawthorns along the upper track.
