September Starts Here

Much quieter today, down Castle Lake late morning/early afternoon, where the following entered the notebook;
6 Shoveler, 20 Teal, 5 Cormorant, 2 Little Egret, 1 Sparrowhawk, 2 Kestrel, 1 juvenile Little Ringed Plover, c600 Lapwing, 6 Ruff, 3 Green Sandpiper, 2 Common Sandpiper, 3 Lesser Black-backed Gull, 10+ House Martin and a Yellow Wagtail.
The A1 Flashes held 19 Curlew and another Green Sandpiper while a Kingfisher was seen along the River Stell.
The three Green Sands together.

Poor record picture of five of the six Ruff that dropped-in briefly.
