Copying the sightings from Old Moor’s record book tonight, there was one that gave me pause. Can you see which one? Ay, did the recorder really mean 32 dunlin? I mean, that’s a lot of dunlin – for us anyway.
Here’s the summary…
But then a quick check on Gary Stone’s tweet from Adwick tonight revealed twenty of these tiny waders over there!
While I’m on, here’s the Bolton sightings from John Seeviour. Thanks as ever to both Gary and John.
Until next time.
Those dunlin get everywhere! But, must say, I’ve never seen that many at OM, even in the Autumn passage, usually 6-12 ish.
