Morning Roundup

This morning the jetty had the juv Little Stint and flock of Ringed Plover. The juv Black Tern and three Common Tern were also present. The Ruff was joined by two Black-tailed Godwits – an adult and a juvenile. Also the juvenile female Peregrine flew around for a while being mobbed by two Hobbys. There was also a Whinchat on the hedge of the field to the south of Rushy Meadow. Obviously this evening’s highlight was a juv Pectoral Sandpiper found by Steve Rodwell – the first since 1989. The 1989 bird lingered for 11 days so you never know this one might be there tomorrow! (Roy Hargreaves)
