August 27th 2010

With all the waders appearing to clear out of Draycote over the last cpl of days i decided to yet again (you guessed it) head for Draycote on arrival i was soon watching 3 Little Ringed Plover (Juv) & 1 Ad Ringed Plover of Hensborough Bank & 2 Whimbrel were calling but could i see the buggers? within a few minutes Bob Duckhouse had joined me & informed me that further up was a Juv Knot (Which apparently i would have a field day with my lens!!) also a Blk-tailed Godwit with 3 Redshank over in Biggen Bay,all birds duly seen (Knot was a beauty & Bob was right!!)
Wheatear juv off the inflow several Yellow Wagtails flitting about,then the long walk around to Farborough Bank collecting an impressive 5 Dunlin between Toft Bank & Farborough also a juv Turnstone!! decided to head back for the Knot!!! by the time i got back around to Hensborough the Ringed Plover had been joined by a 2nd adult & then 2 Turnsone dropped in (Not seen Turnstone in Warks for years had 4 diff individuals in a wk now at Draycote) No sign of the Knot on my 2nd circuit so decided to call it a day!
