Great White Wonders...

After a single (first record) in 2008, Dave Helliar found not one but two Great White Egrets on Chard Res. on Friday night. They were only there for a short time at dusk and not seen again but I managed a record shot..


Late yesterday we recorded at least 9 green sandpipers and 5 common (a record green sandpiper count for the res.) Today, yet another scarce visitor in the shape of a ringed plover on the mud in the southwest corner this morning - very distant again but a record shot all the same:


Let's hope the pattern continues - wood sand or curlew sand would be good next.
