An interesting day.

I was told there was a Black Necked Grebe on the Lagoon and a Wryneck at the North Wall so had to decide my priority, and, as I was short of time I headed to the North
Wall and after a little searching managed to locate the Wryneck. It was in a hawthorn bush and a Robin dive bombed it and made it fairly obvious when it retreated further along and deep into another bush.It showed well a couple of times and then decided to disappear....so no photographs!

On the way back I stopped at the Salthouse and 2 or 3 Curlew Sandpipers were feeding within range

Some nice finds Trevor. The head shape and neck colouring looks good for RNG. I may head in your direction tomorrow. FAB.
