Waders, waders, waders.
The place continues it’s destiny to become the wader capital of the UK.
Joined up with the S.Lincs rspb group and we had a good day. 2 pec sands showed very well indeed. Double figure counts of curlew sands and little stints, mostly smart juveniles, were spread across the reserve. (John Badley later counted 23 little stints together). 2 sanderlings were new additions to the monthly list. There were probably close to 100 ruff, with 50 on the reservoir alone, later on.
Other goodies consisted of whinchat, 2 wheatears, lesser whitethroat, hobby, yellow wags and many other less scarce waders.
