Tuesday 31st July - Wood Sands & Med Gull

Another evening visit to the Meadow. The two WOOD SANDPIPERS, 3 REDSHANK and dozen or so DUNLIN are all about and today's count of COMMON SANDPIPERS was about five though they keep moving around so it's rather hard to be certain. To add some variety there were a couple of LITTLE RINGED PLOVERS (one adult and one juvenile) and to top it off there was a juvenile MEDITERRANEAN GULL in amongst the black-headed gulls tonight though there were no large gulls at all in the roost. I hesitate to say this given the good variety of waders that are currently present but it's starting to get a bit "samey" and I'm rather hoping for a bit of variety, preferably in the form of a Nearctic vagrant wader!

In addition to the birds above Rick Josey reported a SNIPE at 11 a.m.

Here's a bonus grab of the Med Gull
