Dunlin and Ringed Plover
(All of the above pics and those on my website are taken from the perimeter road)
I thought I would miss out!!!
My window of opportunity remained open (briefly) and I was up at Draycote at 0700. I did not have time to do it justice really as my main aim was to get up to Toft asap!
I was not to be disappointed
At least 40 Yellow Wagtail were along Farborough andd Toft Banks. I arrived at the end of the bank and scanned. BINGO Pectoral Sandpiper! This fantastic bird was accompanied by Dunlin (3); Ringed Plover (1); Common Sandpiper (1) and two Curlew Sandpiper, which flew in, had an altercation with a solitary Lapwing, flew around, landed again briefly before flying towards Toft shallows.
My window of opportunity was closing so I had no time to investigate Toft shallows. And now ............................work!
