Wood Sandpiper

Wood Sandpiper on The Shunan when I returned from work was a nice surprise, I could see it from the garden too, very nice. Also two Greenshank, a Ringed Plover, 4 Wigeon and a large female Sparrowhawk which had been hanging around the garden half the day apparently.

The "from the garden list" on Bubo Listing needs updating but the Wood Sandpiper brings the list to 91 for the year. Still no Whimbrel, the Little Stint the other day hid under the wall so was never visible from the garden but I reckon 100 for the year might be possible. Gannet has still evaded me, a clear day with no heat haze and the loan of a Questar might do the trick.
