Venus Pool - Green Sandpipers galore!

The water level looks great now (shame about spring passage) and as if by magic, there were nine Green Sandpipers on the reserve! It took a while to validate the count as they were spread over the islands and only viewable if you visited both members hides!

Lots of record shots and here's the best of those which came close in bright sunshine...

Needing to cool down in the heat?

Strutting in front of the hide...

Hard to pick a favourite?

You have to go back to 1995 to find the only better count at VP which was made by Geoff Holmes on 28th August that year. Pride of place however, the county record came from ASF in 1993 - those were the days!
