Curlew Sandpiper from Dennis's
I went to the reserve first thing this morning and saw a superb summer plumage Curlew Sandpiper unfortunately it had a damaged leg, it was still present this evening. Had I gone straight to the point I would probably have seen the Bee-eater which was flying around the point while I was looking at the Sandpiper, the second one I've missed this year.
The reserve was generally quiet with 6 Ringed Plovers, 6 Sanderling, 2+Hobby's, Marsh Harriers, and the usual Warblers and Hirundines.
an early Pine Hawkmoth in the trap this morning
