Wood you believe it

Well, after years waiting for Wood Sandpiper to be added to my Ingrebourne Valley patch list, I've now seen three this year. Dave Mo and Paulboy found two yesterday at the back of the viewing area in the same place as the spring bird!.

They both showed well all day and even got our highest amount of birders seen at the valley this year. Two Green  Sandpiper were still hanging around with six being there mid-week. Also Common Tern and a young Water Rail and a very smart Juv Black-headed Gull were present in the evening.

Lapwing on the left and one of the Wood Sandpipers on the right. I used the x2 converter for this record shot at f11.
