Green Sandpiper

ARC - 1630hrs - mild, sunny, ne 3 - Following the weekend in London was good to get out for a couple of hours birding this afternoon. ARC was full of eclipse wildfowl, while from Screen hide a post breeding flock of 20 Lapwings and the first Green Sandpiper of the `autumn` confirmed that the return passage is already underway... A flock of Swifts came in from the south along with a scattering of all three hirundines and a migrant Chiffchaff was singing from the willows. Also noted a Sparrowhawk (that flushed the sandpiper), Green Woodpecker, Marsh Harrier and Raven.
