Gann / Dale Airfield (Thursday)

A/the juvenile Curlew Sandpiper still at the Gann, pretending to be a Redshank in Crabhall Corner.  The juvenile Osprey still hanging out up the river above the footbridge.  On the evening high tide 40 Ringed Plover, at least 19 Dunlin, 4 Bar-tailed Godwit and 2 Turnstone.  In amongst the Black-headed Gulls at least 15 Mediterranean Gull (11 adults, 2 2CY, 2 1CY).

Bumped into Brian at the airfield and we combed the stony field together, lots of birds best of which was an adult Yellow Wagtail.  Not a single wader but looks perfect.
