Posing Waders at Black Hole Marsh

Waders are continuing to trickle in around the Axe Estuary. Ian Mc found 2 LRP in the morning so I popped down in the afternoon to see if they were still about; there was no sign for a couple of hours but then 4 LRP dropped in, although 2 quickly departed. Also there's still a dozen or so Common Sands, 4 Dunlin, lots of Redshanks (mostly juvs) and 8 Whimbrel - 4 flew over BHM from the Estuary and moments later another 4 flew upstream behind a flock of Curlew. Here's a few snaps from the afternoon:
