Patch update and some wet weather

This is a bit of a catch up post as I haven't had much free time lately! 31st August saw 2 Sanderling arrive late in the evening and they were still present on 1st September. The rough weather on Sunday didn't quite have the desired effect at dropping in a load of birds; the best I could do were a few extra Ringed Plover (16+) and a Common Tern which flew in from North and landed on BHM for a few hours. The Ruff which lingered for a while seems to have now left us but other wader numbers are strong with 7 Greenshanks and 4 Green Sandpipers being the best of it this morning. Although most have moved through we do still have a few Yellow Wags with us.

Please excuse the dodgy pics; all of these birds were very distant with the exception of the Yellow Wag!

We have also had THIS in with the Canada Geese for a couple of days
