More Swine

Golden Plovers

Less sun than last week, but a lot more wind. Some good views of 5 Ruff (am), Golden Plover, Lapwing and 4 Curlew (2 limping), but it was the 2 industrial Kingfishers which were the biggest surprise and which took the breath away. One of them may have been nest-building. Also present 2 Kestrel (pm), Little Egret (pm), Sparrowhawk (am), 2 Mistle Thrush (am), Yellowhammer (am), Greenfinch, Tree Sparrow and a single Snipe. There were plenty of Redshank, and I thought I could hear some Little Ringed Plovers, but couldn't pick them out.
