More waders

ARC - warm, dry, sunny, sw 3 - Spent some time in Hanson hide this afternoon where the highlight was a smart adult Little Stint in breeding plumage alongside 100 Lapwings, 10 Dunlins, five each of Ringed and Little Ringed Plovers, two Common Sandpipers and a Blackwit. Out on the water hundreds of Coots, ducks and swans, plus a 1st summer Little Gull and plenty of Sand Martins on the move.
Burrowes - More plovers and sandpipers here, plus Redshank and Greenshank but no sign of the Wood Sandpiper seen this morning. A Peregrine showed well scattering the gulls before settling on an island to drink and bathe.
