Was initially disgruntled to have missed the Wood Sandpiper, as I had been visiting regularly and hoping for one. So I was very pleased when today, after a bit of a search, the Wood Sandpiper showed up on The Flood giving excellent views. There was also a Green Sandpiper and a few Snipe present. On the Wildfowlers’ Pool there were 2 Green Sandpipers and a Kingfisher, a Collared Dove was also present.

The Marsh was busy with all the usual birds, Greylag, Canada, Curlew, Redshank, Little Egret, Grey Heron and plenty of Snipe and good numbers of Lapwing. Freeman's Pool was quiet, usual Coot, Little Grebe and 2 Gadwall flew in. A female Kestrel was on the fence. Still a number of Swallows about.
