Sunday 15th May: Wood Sandpiper

A rather quiet day in the county and on the Meadow was enlivened this evening when I went out for "last orders" on the Meadow and discovered a nice WOOD SANDPIPER together with a GREENSHANK and five DUNLIN. This is the third wood sandpiper for the Meadow this spring already which is excellent going. There was also a (non-leucistic) EGYPTIAN GOOSE around as well as a couple of YELLOW WAGTAILS. The mute swan count this evening was an impressive 28 birds.
