Recent sightings - Steve Rodwell

Had the chance to do quite a bit of birding as I was home the first couple of days of the week and did the rounds after work yesterday. It is remarkably quiet. Best bird was an adult YELLOW-LEGGED GULL (the first of the year) over Wilstone Wednesday evening. At Pitstone Quarry there have been up to 3 LRPs, 2 Common Sandpipers, 1 Green Sandpiper (probably the same bird that has been at the sewage works), 1 Snipe, 2 juv Redshanks and 1 Mandarin. At Wilstone there were 27 Great crested Grebes including 7 juvs, 6 Shoveler and 5 Teal. 1 Red-crested Pochard was still at Startops. That's about it. Kind regards, Steve
