And yet more WHIMBRELS grounded - Sunday morning

Another good morning at the lake today with the highlight being a flock of 8 WHIMBREL that flew in at 7.45, tried to land on the area north of the lakebut after being harrassed by a Crow flew off to the east.

The only other passage wader was a Common Sandpiper on the marsh but it was also nice to see a Common Snipe lingering. Thought I heard it drumming at one point and it was certainly in the air when I heard the sound so seems probable.

Pitsone Hill was very cold and quiet with just a single Corn Bunting singing, 2 Common Whitethroats and a Red Kite. Good numbers of hirundines at Startops but nothing else of note (Rob Andrews).
