Breech Pool again!

This time it was to look at and photograph the Wood Sandpiper reported on the  S.O.S. web site yesterday. joy.

A Curlew obliged in the saltmarsh...


...and a variety of geese showed up on the Breech Pool.
 Besides the Canada Geese....a Barnacle Goose, a Grey Lag Goose and the pale faced  Canada

Barnacle Goose
Grey Lag...just the one

Pale face!

The Ruff (or is it a Reeve) was feeding in the pool once the water level had dropped sufficiently.

...but still no sign of my target bird!

Four Greenshanks, 2 Spotted Redshanks and a Common Sandpiper joined the Redshanks in the main channel extending to Whites Creek....we await the Curlew Sandpipers!
