Late afternoon early evening at Scotney

No sign of any Buff Breasted Sandpipers this evening but 21 Ruff some of which were confiding with 1000+ Golden Plover. Still large numbers of Swallows moving east attracting the attention of a fem/juv Merlin giving a spectacular display, also a Sparrowhawk making a half hearted attempts at the Swallows. While scanning the  Goldies and Lapwings i came across an albino Lapwing the first i have ever seen, also a Rock Pipit and Little Stint running round the sheep field with the ever present Marsh Harrier over the fields at the back of the pit.
