Green Sandpiper from Firth taken through the curtain of vegetation in front the the hide
A lazy day today in the heat. A very full MV with a few nice moths took me the best part of the morning go through. Even the lure of a Wood Warbler skulking in the trapping area couldn't lure me from home.
Late afternoon I visited Hanson Hide where all I could find of note was 2 Black-tailed Godwits and a Common Sandpiper, though there could have been much more obscured by the reeds blocking the from most the hide.
From Dennis's Hide there was plenty of Common Tern activity on the new Tern raft and on a nearby island with several birds sitting and a few chicks visible, with the addition of non breeding birds there was a minimum of 250 Common Terns present on Burrowes. From Firth a Green Sandpiper and 7 Common Sandpipers and 2 Little Ringed Plovers around the islands.
