Two More New Wader Species!

Following on from the Jack Snipe at the start of the month I managed to add another two species to my Bishop Middleham list this evening and both, as the blog title alludes, were waders.
An excellent find by Joe Hughes and a long awaited first site record for Castle Lake was this Sanderling partially moulting into summer plumage.
many thanks to Paul Hindess for the tip-off.

The A1 flashes are living up to the name for a nice change and 10 Whimbrel were taking advantage.

BM list #151 Sanderling
BM list #152 Whimbrel
