Bestest bird this afternoon was an adult Curlew Sandpiper-- feeding along Gull Bank on the dropping spring tide. Ten or twelve pixels are devoted to it, below.
It was in the company of Lapwings, gulls and a very large pink jellyfish (c2ft across) which had washed up on the mud.
Other passage waders at Aldcliffe included at least two Whimbrel and a Green Sandpiper.
Passerine interest seemed very limited with just a few juvenile Chiffchaffs and a Sedge Warbler drawing any attention to themselves.
Jon's Garganey is still in the area, as are many (low four-figures?) feral greylags.
Odonata spotting was a bit hit and miss in borderline weather but a few Emerald Damselfly and Brown Hawker were new for the year. Readers of a sensitive disposition should avoid looking at the Emperors pictured below.
