Sunday 29th July - Wood Sandpipers Still

I'm back to my standard evening visits at the moment, today in the company of Jarrod Hadfield. There was another good haul of waders this evening with some birds coming in whilst we were there. The two WOOD SANDPIPERS were still about and there were two BLACK-TAILED GODWITS still left over (or perhaps they were new birds) as well as the OYSTERCATCHER and two or three juvenile REDSHANKS. Two COMMON SANDPIPERS were working their way along the shore though were often hidden and hard to see. Two GREEN SANDPIPERS dropped in whilst we were there as did a flock of 13 DUNLIN. There was another good gull roost with more than 1000 birds though the vast majority are still black-headed gulls. There was once again a smattering of larger gulls about though still no yellow-legged gulls yet.
