Peewit City

Wader variety continues to provide the main interest and this lovely sunny evening at Castle Lake was no exception with the following on offer;
3 Oystercatcher, 3 Little Ringed Plover, a whopping 600 Lapwing, 1 Ruff, 1 Dunlin, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, 5 Curlew (including a juvenile) and 2 Green Sandpiper.

Two of this evenings waders, Black-tailed Godwit and a rather long-billed Dunlin.

Other birds on view included the drake Scaup, 2 Little Egret, 2 Lesser Black-backed Gull, 90 Black-headed Gull and a Sparrowhawk.

Still hundreds of Greylag Geese present including this one with a white base to the bill and a much paler head and neck (though its difficult to tell from this rubbish picture).
