An afternoon short walk to Farborough Spit and back produced most of the birds recorded yesterday, but with perhaps better views. Medicaly, I have been advised to get outside in the fresh air and do the things that I enjoy to pave the way for my return to work.
It was good to touch base again with the Manx Shearwater that obliged by coming in quite close. Waders on Farborough Bank included a Turnstone, a Common Sandpiper, c15 Dunlin, a Ruff, two Greenshank, two Ringed Plovers, three Little Ringed Plovers, one Little Stint and one Knot. New for me today were two Little Gulls and a Curlew Sandpiper. At least three Swifts were overhead, around twelve Yellow Wagtails and two Wheatears.
