Missed Birds

Lade - 0800hrs - cool, sunny, w2 - A chilly start to the day; I really must dig out some long trousers...
A viz mig half an hour from the aerial mound produced the now usual flow of small finches, including one party of 30 Redpolls and a Brambling. Not much else around the pits apart from the expected wildfowl, a Chiffchaff in the sallows and 5 Swallows over the water.
ARC - 1700hrs - Called into Hanson hide where apparently there`d been a Dotteral amongst the Goldies this afternoon. All I could find of note were 2 Goldeneyes on the water, a Kingfisher and 3 Pintail with the Shovelers. Also, reported around the reserve (according to gen in Hanson) were Little Auk, Pectoral Sandpiper, Little Stint and the long-staying Great White Egret.
So, pick the bones out of that lot...
