......and some WeBS counting today the bonus's of which were a juvenile Peregrine Falcon over Glasson Marsh from Bodie Hill which went away empty handed and obviously a bit to learn about hunting for survival. At Pilling Marsh 3 Wheatear and a Little Egret which will be something of a guarantee here for several months now I would suggest.
A nice little trio of Sanderling thanks to Phil Slade. I'd hazard a guess at being taken at Rossall Point though I did forget to note where on Phil's blog.
A juvenile Curlew Sandpiper at Cockers Dyke thanks to Chris Batty. Always worth an invasion here into Fylde territory with Med Gull's regular and lately Little Stint and Green Sandpiper of particular note, and I'll give RBA pager service a 'plug' here because all these sightings are always reported by them and 'pronto' at that.
And a Savannah Sparrow thanks to my contact Paul Baker from over the pond......thanks Paul. I could well be out of date on this one but my claim - until I'm challenged otherwise - is that only two records exist in Britain (and Europe) the first of which was a male at Portland Bill in Dorset on 11-16 April 1982, and the second was found at the opposite end of the country and in a different season, a 1st winter bird was on Fair Isle, Shetland on 30 September and 1 October 1987. A very interesting species 'split' here......perhaps another time!
