Gann – Little Ringed Plover


A smart juvenile Little Ringed Plover picked up by Lisa at the top of the lagoon this evening (I thought it was a stone from behind!).  This species is getting more regular here (3 records last year: 2 in spring, 1 in autumn).  As Graham notes Redshank are returning, we’ve had them for a while now and are up to around 20, but today was the first juvenile of the autumn. Yes, autumn!  Also 3 Greenshank and what I presume is the same Bar-tailed Godwit that has been around all summer.  Also our first Common Sandpiper of the autumn. (Dave & Lisa)
