Now that the Rev. Jon Carter is off to terrorise North American birds instead, I thought I'd better start working his parish again.
I too was hankering for yanks this afternoon, but there was to be no pec on the pools or American goldie in with the plovers.
But a juvenile curlew sandpiper on the estuary at Gull Bank was a pleasing find.
Also in the area:
a female merlin (Falco columbarius)
