Glorious sunshine and blue skies on Sunday brought a small group of passage curlew sandpipers to the reserve, feeding at relatively close quarters from Sand grounders Hide amongst 2 dunlin, avocet, black-tailed godwit and a stunning male ruff. The birds were present from about 10 am -4 pm. Other birds of notes on the reserve included 28 dunlin on Polly's Pool & 138 dunlin with 13 ringed plover down at Nel's Hide.
curlew sandpipers during this time of year have a brick rusty red breast and are a absolutely stunning to see, so why not pop along to the reserve to see if you can see them for yourselves in this great weather!
