As some of you may know, i have been 'working' sheepwash abit more regularly recently (about once a week), the low water levels giving hope for some urban waders.
Today only a single wader was in residence, a single Common Sandpiper, however the highlight was a family flock of Grey Wagtail showing well on rocks on the north-east side of the main pool consisting of an adult male, an adult female and a single juv-1st winter.
2 Stock Dove were on the 'meadow' field that held the Whinchat, before the grass was burnt and then mown >:(
A single Common Blue Butterfly was showing,
And a Brown Hawker dragonfly evaded the camera
