Soooth again

Had to go Soooth for a family event and so dipped on the Cranes, one possibly flew past the house :-( thus the lack of recent posts. However, reports of 48 Dunlin were not exaggerated, I counted 47 yesterday and there are possibly more than that this evening. Yesterday there were at least 8 Ringed Plover as well but today I could only manage 5. However, a Greenshank was repeatedly heard but not seen and other visitors today to the Shunan included a superb pale phase Arctic Skua and a Bonxie this evening.

Star bird of the moment is the Cuckoo that is calling from behind the house and audible from the garden and (just) from the Shunan. Louise found this on Monday morning and I caught up with it this evening.

I had to work late today so didn't go for the R-r Swallow, not sure I will as I'd much rather find something here, B-b Sand will be mine soon, surely...

Forgot to let you know the Dunlin count on the Shunan as we left on Sunday went up to 59.
