Bonby Bits.

After a tip off yesterday evening about a couple of Temminck's Stint and a small flock of 6 Wood Sands at Bonby Carrs,i decided to go down and have a look this morning after dropping Trace at work.When i arrived it was blowing a gale and peeing down,but it soon brightened up and i walked down to look to see if any of the waders were showing.After a little while and with some able assistance from RH and WG we managed to see 4 Wood Sandpiper feeding around the water's edge,although a little distant,but still cracking birds all the same!.Also on the rapidly drying pools were a couple of cracking Little Egret,a single Dunlin and Greenshank and a very nice 'Greenland type' male Wheatear.Also present was a very unseasonal neck collared Pink-footed Goose,which surely should be on it's way to Iceland by now,perhaps the cold easterly weather last week has held it back?.A nice couple of hours on the local area.
