A new kid on the block tonight, a new photographer that is... This image of a Whimbrel with it's beak open was sent through by James How! Was it feeling the heat one asks?
James also sent some sightings through at the same time. He had 70 Lapwing on the reserve yesterday, along with 10 Black tailed Godwits and also 5 Moorhens. Today, he had 11 Whimbrel, 1 Peregrine and 119 Bar tailed Godwits.
The RAFOS folk had been commenting on the Cornrake calling at night, but the other morning, some of them had an early morning call at 5 am with the Cuckoo in the wood, not much sleep for some that night!
