Dapper dabbler

Half an hour down the settling beds almost involved queuing up for parking as Ben, Rich and Neal had all had the same notion, with some Tern and Little Gull movement going on elsewhere in the county it was always worth a look.  Although there were no surface dippers there were some dashing duck in the form of the Garganey which have taken up a secretive residence.

A posse of Yellow Wagtails came in of the fields to roost and further up river a pair of Comnmon Sandpiper bobbed and giggled maniacally.  With migration in full flow it really is the most wonderful time of the year.
