Waderfest

This beautiful day started at Big waters, Black necked grebe and Water rail the highlights. Then it was off to Arcot, lots of Teal and Coot and a newly hatched Little grebe chick  on the pond and 2 Great spotted woodpeckers in the trees. Next stop was St Mary's island, a small crowd staring at a stand of willows were looking for a Yellow browed warbler it showed briefly a couple of times. A walk down to the beach and it was waders galore, I managed to get close to Dunlin, Ringed plover, Sanderling, Turnstone  Barwit and Redshank . On the rocks Oiks, Golden plover and lapwing, also there  2 Sandwich terns.
