Purple Sandpipers

Hythe - warm, dry and sunny - Had to go to the cash-n-carry at Folkestone this morning so on the way home, as it was high tide, checked out the sea defence blocks along the sea front at Sandgate and Hythe. The first two sets of granite blocks were barren but at Stade Street two Purple Sandpipers were present enjoying the warm sunshine and ignoring the waves crashing over the rocks below. There was no sign of any Turnstones though.

Walland Marsh - A check on the local wild swans for the WWT survey revealed 38 Bewick`s out the back of Lydd by Horse`s Bones Farm and two Whoopers amongst the Mutes at Cockles Bridge, where also Marsh Harrier, Buzzard and Stonechat.
