Chelmarsh - Wood Sand again!

Another Wood Sand at Chelmarsh!! It had been present since early morning but many thanks to Dave Western, who got the news out early afternoon. The light was dire, the rain was coming down stair rod fashion but what the heck, Wood Sands don't drop in every day!

It didn't look good - I got there at 3.00 and after 40 mins or so, there was no sign, mainly due to the local Lapwing louts who were having a go at anything with long legs!

Then....






All smiles again!






I was surprised that I could come away with a decent record shot ot two given the poor light and this was probably the pick of them!






There were at least four Green Sandpipers and they weren't too fussed with having the visitor drop in! They are frequently confused with Woods and looking at these two comparison shots, one wonders - why?








Has it stopped raining yet?
