Not to keen on the thunder at the moment so thought I'd actually do a post here on the relevant day instead of a few days after. Out and about early this morning gave great views of this youngster so was well worth the effort.
This afternoon a trip to Black hole marsh revealed a partial summer plumage ruff which was rather fond of a common sandpiper though the feeling did not appear to be mutual
6 dunlin were close to the island hide together with 4 little ring plovers
The common sandpiper finally made its escape from the ruff
and finally a med gull was in the same pace as the last few afternoons
