Little Ringed Plover and Green Sandpipers

As Linda and I were driving into Norwich yesterday we noticed some small birds among the gull flock on a shallow pool east of Norwich. A nod's as good as a wink, so we were up and out by 7,00am today and within ten minutes were enjoying good views of three Little Ringed Plovers and two Green Sandpipers.

The birds were surprisingly confiding: we stood motionless on the path and all five approached within a hundred yards - occasionally closer. A family group of Egyptian Geese were also present: good to see the development of this bit of green belt has (in the short term, at least) provided habitat for some interesting wildlife.
