Green, Dock, And The Nab.

It was looking like I was going to have to report none seen at Conder Green yesterday, but just as I was about to leave 4 Common Sandpiper flew together down the creeks, also a Greenshank and little more than 20 Redshank seen. Conder Pool was quiet save 3 Little Grebe, 2 Little Egret, and the all alone drake Wigeon waiting for the arrival of the relatives

At Glasson Dock on the Lune Estuary, the Spoonbill was duly present at the mouth of the Conder again, with 2 Mediterranean Gull being both adults, a Ruff was with c.150 Redshank close in from the bowling green, and 12 Little Egret counted. 

Mediterranean Gull Red Nab 20 Aug Pete Woodruff

At Heysham Red Nab high tide roost, just the one adult Mediterranean Gull found with c.200 Black-headed Gull, 2 Sandwich Tern, and c.2,500 Oystercatcher with uncounted Redshank and Curlew.

Seems like a great day of birding to me, with a really nice assortment of species.
