Ruff 4 Greenshank 3

Well that was the score at Castle Lake this afternoon but expect the totals to increase further as we approach the time of year when return wader passage really picks-up, double figure counts of Greenshank and Ruff wouldn't be a surprise based on recent years.
Other waders on view were 4 Little Ringed Plover, 350 Lapwing, 1 Dunlin, 1 Snipe, 2 Curlew and 4 Green Sandpiper.
2 female Teal were the first for a while and they were joined by 2 Cormorant, 1 Little Egret, 5 Lesser Black-backed Gull, 22 Common Gull and overflying Sparrowhawk and Kestrel.
