4 Juvenile Northern Wheatears seemed to be on the move and showed well for a bit of practice photography.
Female Wheatear and a Tree Creeper were the best we could do and then at the Railings a small group of Ringed Plover and Dunlin again gave us a photo opportunity.
We continued onto North plain roadside pool where there were a really good selection of Waders. 4 Whimbrel, 60+ Bar-tailed Godwit, 5 Grey Plover, 10 Golden Plover, a few Knot, Curlew and a Couple of Icelandic Black-tailed Godwit. These were all roosting on the grass because of the high tide. On the Pool itself 5 Common Snipe and a few lapwings were about it. We saw the tide was dropping so headed back to Port Carlisle to check the waders on the falling tide, very disappointing really, not the numbers we had hoped for. 2 Whimbrel and a Black tailed Godwit were mixed in with the Dunlin, Golden Plover and Redshank, nothing rares or scare was evident, pile of crap! A nice Sparrowhawk did sit for us however.
Adult Curlew Sandpiper, at last!!!! That was it though, seven o'clock was approaching and it was time for home.
Ive probably missed something but if i have it was shite and probably worth forgetting ;-)
