More Waders.

Some brief heavy showers encouraged some passage birds to drop in over the weekend.

The increasing mud was also an attraction.

On Friday 13th 2 Ringed, 1 Little Ringed and a single Dunlin were on the mud opposite the lodge.

On the morning of 13th there were also 5 Oystercatchers. By the evening there was only one left. It was enjoying a feast of Swan mussels and was still there on the 15th.

I had to take this photo of Brown's wood. It is hard to imagine that only afew years ago it was an arable field. This is the same site that hosted a Stone Curlew in May 2003.
