On The Shunan this evening were two Ringed Plovers and two Common Sandpipers. One of the Ringed Plovers is quite interesting, small, not much orange in the bill, thin black band on the breast, I had to give it a grilling as I thought originally it was going to be LRP, eventually it flew and revealed itself. Both RPs flew to the island so I drove up the track with the expectation of adding them to the "from the garden" list but by the time I got there they'd hid back in the corner I expect, couldn't see them anyway. I dipped on Sand Martin this morning as well as one flew through The Shunan whilst I was down there, still needed for the "from the garden" list. There was a new Brambling under the feeders.
