The Lesser Yellowlegs was still at the Gann yesterday (25th) but no sign of it on the lagoon today. 3 Ruff, of varying sizes, this evening by Crabhall were really nice, and there was a smart juvenile Curlew Sandpiper on the beach with a small group of Dunlin, Ringed Plover and Turnstone.
Also yesterday3 Curlew Sandpiper on Dale Airfield, commuting between the stony field and the western/southern runway intersection.
The Canada Warbler was seen again yesterday afternoon after the range road re-opened at 1645 after firing stopped, sadly my dash for it ended in defeat. Maybe it will stay a bit longer and ride out tomorrow’s storm?
