More Waders!

13/08/11
We once again dropped into earlswood lakes to see if any waders were about, and you can imagine my immense suprise when the juv DUNLIN was still probing away along the edges of the Engine pool island, however it had moved onto the near shore, and was showing a mere 40ft away, and with the light, i got some decent (for me) pics of the bird:

After watching the dunlin, we headed over to Upton Wrren, where a nice few waders were down. here is a nice little trio:

(Ringed Plover, Dunlin and Green Sandpiper)

A single Juv RINGED PLOVER was picking away around keeping close company with the adult DUNLIN, A single juv Redshank was showing, as was 6+ Green sand, and 2 Common sand.

29 Curlew roosted, and 9 Common Tern came in with the Gulls.
