August 27th 2010

Bob H, Bob D and Dave H did well this morning at the pond with Knot, 5 Dunlin, Redshank, 3 Turnstone, Black-tailed Godwit and 2 Whimbrel all new arrivals plus more Ringed Plovers and 8 Common Tern so there were a few smiling faces by the time Dave and I got to the pond early afternoon.
We managed to see the juvenile Knot in rainbow, 2 Turnstone on hensborough bank and very long distant views of the Black-tailed Godwit in biggen bay but the 2 Whimbrel had gone straight through and we did not look for the Dunlin, Redshank or the third Turnstone. Also seen were 5 Ringed Plover, 2 Little Ringed Plover, 2 Common Sandpiper, 4 Little Egret, 2 adult Yellow-legged Gull and 5 Common Tern while on the way home we had adult Yellow-legged Gull and Hobby just outside Bilton near the new bypass.

Knot by Dave Hutton - just awesome pics Dave - many thanks
