The Midrips - 0800hrs A decent return on waders before I got asked to leave by range staff as they changed the shooting times. The highlight was a summer plum Curlew Sandpiper, also, 25 Dunlin, 21 Avocets, 30 Redshanks, 20 Lapwings, 12 Oystercatchers, 12 Ringed Plovers, 2 LRP`s and a Grey Plover. Wheatear and Mipit feeding young.
Rannoch LooperDungeness - 1130hrs - The Baitdigger strikes again with a male Red-backed Shrike seen flying over South View. By the time I arrived the Lord of Hookers and the Joker were also on site. We soon relocated the nervy shrike close by as it perched atop scrub a couple of times before heading out into the Desert. The second one of the spring.
