Count to ten 1,2,.............10 Smiley face, what a lovely day on the Solway, started at Abbeytown, the sun was a bit strong but i could just about make out 5 Ruff and a Common Sandpiper. A small group of Dunlin came off the flood from out of site so i didnt get to check them properly.
Moved onto Port Carlilse and Bowness Railings but the only birds of note were a Greenshank and 3 Sanderling. There were again very few waders 100 small waders Ringed Plover and Dunlin, oh and a single Golden Plover.
The best birds however were two possible northern Fennoscandia and western Siberian Dunlin, ssp. alpina paler birds these were on the railings.
