Passage waders

Burrowes - cool, sunny, ne 5 - An evening visit with the guests to the bird reserve in a blasting north-easterly from Firth hide delivered three adult passage waders in full breeding plumage. Best of the trio was a brick-red Curlew Sandpiper, plus a black Ruff and a Black-tailed Godwit. From the access road two Hobbies were grounded on the shingle ridges.
  Elsewhere today the strong wind made for difficult birding conditions, although the Serin was still present at Littlestone.
