Saturday & Sunday

A late afternoon visit to the ARC on Saturday found the Pectoral Sandpiper in superb light but to distant to get any decent pics. Other Waders there were 2 Ruff, LRPs including the 2 fluff balls, Common and Green Sandpiper, Lapwing, Golden Plovers, Oystercatchers, Dunlin and the usual wild fowl. Today no sign of the Pec. but Golden Plovers had increased to 52, 1 Wood Sandpiper, 3+ Green Sandpipers, 2+ Common Sandpipers, 1 Greenshank, the LRPs and fluff balls are now a week old, the Goosander at the South end, 10+ Willow Warblers in the Willow Trail and 100+ Sand Martins feeding over the pit. At The Patch 50+ Common Terns, 1+ Arctic Tern, 1 Kittiwake and little else of note. In the bushes around The Moat/Lighthouse just 2 Willow Warblers, 18 Whitethroat and 2 Wheatears.
