Reported on and off today but some sightings are known to have referred to a ruff…jeffbutcherParticipantSeptember 15, 2021 at 7:35 pmPost count: 55
We were in the Morecambe hide about 10 a.m. today. One of the photographers saw something land on the mud where lapwing were standing and asked if it was a dunlin, but then quickly found it and said ruff. When I found it and was trying to get a photo, I suddenly realised how small it was against the lapwing and greenshank. While I was puzzling on this, the photographer had got a good shot and realised it was a pectoral sandpiper. I don’t think any of us knew one had been seen the day before. There was a disturbance and everything moved but the pec remained with the lapwings. About 10.20 the pec suddenly took off and flew directly towards Griesdale hide.
Also seen: 8 greenshank (1 leucistic), 1 great white egret on flood, 1 kestrel (juv) 4+ wheatears, 1 stonechat, 2 black-tailed godwit, 2 spotted redshank.
Has anyone managed a count of Cetti’s warblers between the car park and Allen hide?
