While Brenda was on Kingfisher Watch yesterday (yes they are still around) she also saw a few Wheatears and this smart male Ruff. I suspect that he will end up with a fine chestnut ruff in few weeks time when he touches down in his Dutch or even Arctic breeding grounds.
Another six Wheatears (taking us to ten) and a female Whinchat were also seen along the river wall in the late afternoon.
