At the ponds shorebird numbers are building up, and at last I had triple-figures of migrants today, and this without a single Calidris!
As usual, Tringas were the bon-ton, with about 40 Redshank, 50 Wood, 40 Green and 5 Common Sandpipers. Among the scarcer species were one good-looking Spotted Redshank, one adult Greenshank and one adult Marsh Sandpiper. Two Little Ringed Plovers were new arrivals. No Spotted or Buff-breasted Sandpipers either this time...
