A busy few days

A summer-plumaged female LONG-TAILED DUCK was the surprise find of the day - associating with 4 Tufted Duck on the easternmost pit at Radwell Workings (Richard Bashford et al)....

Otherwise, the 3 WHIMBREL remained with the Greylag Geese at Peacocks Lake (Broom) with COMMON NIGHTINGALES singing at Brogborough Lake and Stewartby Lake

Yesterday, highlights included a SANDWICH TERN at Stewartby and 2 BAR-TAILED GODWITS at Gypsy Lane East (Broom)
