Ahhh summer

and the deluge has begun. Just like last year when it seemed to rain solidly till the end of August and Prestwick Carr looked like this.

and as a result I added Pectoral Sandpiper and Little Stint to my patch list which along with appearances of Greenshank, Wood Sandpiper, Ringed Plover, Ruff, Grey Plover and Redshank made last autumns passage an exciting time. I still have dreams of April 2005 though when 80 almost summer plummage Black Tailed Godwit turned up as top photo and would appreciate a repeat.

Looking forward to getting out first thing tomorrow weather permitting.
