Chard res continues to reel in the waders...

The record number of green sandpipers for Chard res has been broken yet again with an amazing 13 present last night and early this morning. Quite a site to see so many and mixed with up to 7 common sands too. Last night Dave Helliar scored again with another redshank as well:

Green sandpiper: Dave Helliar
Juv redshank with green sand: Dave Helliar
Redshank, juv: Dave Helliar
Redshank, juv: Dave Helliar
Is the res in danger of getting something really good? Could we manage to get a little stint or curlew sandpiper? Believe me, the local birders really need them after such a dire patch but only the coming days will tell if the res can deliver - watch this space.
