WOOD SANDPIPER still present this evening

The juvenile WOOD SANDPIPER is still present (at 1730 hours) in Pitstone Quarry. It has now been joined by a summer plumaged schinzii DUNLIN, whilst the Ringed Plover seems to have departed (Dave Bilcock) See both birds depicted above - DB

With hot weather, it is of no surprise to find that several youngsters are again utilising the lake for their enjoyment, sunbathing and swimming from the island at the east end
