A check on the Otter Estuary first thing this morning produced some good counts of waders for here with 34 Dunlin, 8 Ringed Plover, 1 Common Sandpiper and 5 Whimbrel. The latter desperately seeking shelter in the gale force wind and landing on the shingle ridge. A lone Wheatear was also trying to find shelter.
However, best of all was a juvenile Wood Sandpiper on the scrapes (now with water!) late this afternoon and only my 4th on the patch, the last being 12th August 2018.
