Common Sandpipers

Lade - warm, dry, sunny, NE 4 - A nagging wind off the sea once again suppressed the moth catch in the garden trap to a miserable 11 species. Once the early morning cloud burnt off it was another blue sky summers day, but with no change on the local patch from yesterday.
Burrowes - Called in the bird reserve this afternoon on the way back from the allotment where the first two Common Sandpipers of the return passage were on the islands, along with several each of Ringed Plover, Lapwing and Curlew. Several Common Tern chicks were noted on the islands, plus Hobby, Cuckoo and Marsh Harrier from the access road track.
