INCREDIBLE number of WOOD SANDS at Black Hole Marsh

I was already on the way out to check Black Hole Marsh, but a text from Ian Mc with the words '27 Wood Sands' made me pick up the pace! This number then became 29, 31, 33 and finally 34. This was a number counted three times and by two people, but it could be even more than this as not all areas of the marsh are visible from Island Hide. Other birds of interest includes Little Stint, Greenshank and 8 Ruff. Here's a pic of a Wood Sandpiper from last night, taken when there were only 3 birds present!
