Pectoral Sandpiper at Cley

An early - but still very warm - walk along the East Bank with Norman and Brian gave us distant (but conclusive) views of a dapper little Pectoral Sandpiper. Joining it around the Serpentine were Dunlins, LRPs, Green Sandpipers and Black-tailed Godwits, while behind us half a dozen juvenile Bearded Tits pinged away among the reeds.

A move to Avocet Hide revealed that both Simmonds and Whitwell Scrapes still held enough water to attract a good range of waders, including Common, Green and Wood Sandpipers, as well as an elegant Greenshank. A Yellow-legged Gull lazed on an island among Lesser and Greater Blackbacks, Herring Gulls and Little Egrets.
