Sandpipers on the move...

A visit to Chard Res yesterday morning showed that waders are on the move and now that there's mud, they can stop off at the res instead of flying straight down to the coast. There were seven common sandpipers and a green sandpiper in the south-east corner and they eventually made there way towards the bird hide. Thankfully it was early and the legions of mothers, kids and pushchairs hadn't disturbed everything yet...
