Turnstone and Ringos

I'm back! It was SO good to get out on patch for some birding after a few days away doing a Three Peaks Challenge (see previous 2 posts). Fortunately I didn't miss anything really good whilst away; it's obviously still a bit early for most of the rare stuff but there's always a chance. I paid BHM and the Axe estuary a couple of visits today and the notable birds were:

1 Turnstone
1 Green Sandpiper
1 Med Gull (adult)
3 Whimbrel
6 Ringed Plover (5 adult, 1 juvenile)
23+ Dunlin

A juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was the target with a few about lately in this unsettled weather but it was not to be.

Light was poor for photos and the camera gear got wet but at least a couple of birds came fairly close today:


Ringed Plover

Expect more regular posting from me from now on!
