LITTLE STINT still present, and large early morning passage of YELLOW WAGTAILS

This morning the wind was definitely stronger than yesterday and from the hide five juvenile RUFF were visible and four Ringed Plover by the stream, which looked to be a new family party. From the jetty the juvenile LITTLE STINT was joined by a juvenile Dunlin (see Dave Hutchinson's excellent new shots above), six Ringed Plover and LRP and a Ruff was also on this quadrant making a total of six. No sign of the Black-tailed Godwits and Greenshank numbers looked about the same as yesterday.

It was also interesting to see a flock of 21 Yellow Wagtails fly low over the reservoir and Ian had a flock of seven earlier this morning (Roy Hargreaves)

Ian Williams also located a WHINCHAT in the back fields later.
