August 23rd 2010

Not a lot to report. Heavy rain most of the night and at mid-day so Bob and I managed a quick look at the pond early afternoon but apart from the wader numbers dropping there was little new. Hensborough bank had 4 Little Ringed Plover, 2 Dunlin, 6 Common Sandpiper, Ruff and one Ringed Plover. The Wigeon and Goosander were still on the inlet with distant views of 3 Little Egrets in biggen and toft bay, 4 Buzzard and 2 adult Yellow-legged Gull. The rain had brought in 10 Swift and 50 Sand Martin among a couple of hundred House Martin and Swallows.

After we had photographed this Red Underwing it was released and showed so well in the bush we could not resit another shot.
