Nice group of waders

Common Sandpiper, Turnstone, 3 Ringed Plover and 2 Dunlin on our early morning visit to the pond before a sponsored walk started was unusual as we have little suitable shoreline due to ST maintaining a high as possible water level policy. Single Yellow Wagtail while House Martins numbered 1000+, 100 Swallow and 300 Sand Martin.
After breakfast a discussion where to go next was decided by messages from John and Paul that a Pec was at Brandon Marsh and though distant it was present along with Ruff and 20 Snipe. Also Buzzard, Sparrowhawk, 2 Jay, Shelduck and Great-spotted Woodpecker.
