Ian Williams had a GREY PLOVER fly through too, as well as a DUNLIN, whilst also 'new in' were up to 9 Green Sandpipers and a single GREENSHANK. Steve Rodwell had 2 BLACK TERNS whizz quickly through Wilstone whilst also noted were 3 GARGANEY, 5 Common Sandpipers, 2 Yellow Wagtails, 6 Grey Wagtails and a big increase in dabbling ducks, particularly Common Teal and Shoveler. The single Pintail remains, as does the eclipse drake Wigeon.
On the Hills, at least 7 COMMON REDSTART are present, with 5 below the main car park, 2 near the S-bend and others on Steps Hill, with 3 Northern Wheatears in the sheep fields. A LITTLE EGRET flew west this afternoon - my first-ever at this locality.
