After a day of solid unrelenting rain, miraculously come the evening it brightened up and there was even some sunshine for my visit. The mini wader-fest continues with the COMMON SANDPIPER and 6 LITTLE RINGED PLOVER today joined by 5 DUNLIN, 2 OYSTERCATCHERS and a REDSHANK (the last two seen by Richard Foster). In addition, Jarrod Hadfield reported an amazing total of 24 little egrets in the morning. The drake TUFTED DUCK is still around and there is a single wigeon back in amongst the other ducks.
Here's a Ringlet from Burgess Field taken last week
