Above - Purple Sandpipers.
If you do nothing else today, have a look at Graham Catley's photos from Finland on his blog ( link on the left). They are absolutely the dogs'...brings a tear to my eye!
Two short trips to Boulmer, morning and afternoon. This morning was drizzly and damp but it was brighter this afternoon.
Of note -
2 Purple Sandpipers, 37 Dunlin, 96 Redshank, 110+ Curlew, 1 female Sparrowhawk, 4 Reed Buntings and a few Yellowhammers, 2 Stonechats, 2 Meadow Pipit, 12 Rock Pipits, 1+ Grey Wagtail and 3 Goldcrests in the plantation. There were 3 tideline corpses, possibly victims of the recent severe weather, 1 female Shelduck, fresh as was a Razorbill. The Kittiwake remains were much older.
