After yesterdays long but great day I had a lay in. When I finally surfaced I heard that 2 White-winged Black Terns had been seen at Stodmarsh.  I guessed Steve Ashton would be at Stodmarsh so I called him for an update, he kindly informed me that the birds were still there.
On arrival at the Lampen Wall the birds were showing well though the light was terrible(thats my excuse) I spent a long time watching and try to photograph them before having a plod around the reserve. At the water meadows a Wood Sandpiper, a Greenshank and distant flight view of a Temminckt's Stint with 4 Ringed Plovers. Hoping for better views I walked round to Harrisons drove with Gavin Coultrip, then to the Marsh Hide but no luck, though a Lapwing performed in front the hide and Hobby's seemed to be everywhere. Arriving back at the Lampen Wall I heard that the stint was back at the water meadows so had a quick walk there to get good scope views of it.
Also seen and heard were Reed, Sedge, Cetti's and Garden Warblers, Blackcaps, Treecreepers and a Nightingale.
