Waders Returning.

This is one of the best times of the year to visit our coastline and inland waters as this is the time of the year for returning Wader passage. Look closely amongst the flocks of Dunlin and you could be rewarded with the much rarer Curlew Sandpaper.
Around our lakes and reservoir's you could be rewarded with a Wood Sandpiper.
Also the cousin of the Redshank the more elegant Spotted Redshank.
You could even be rewarded with a very rare bird like the one found at Blithfield Reservoir today a vagrant from American shores the appropriately named Lesser Yellowlegs.
This one was photographed some years ago at Thornham in Norfolk.
