|Green Sandpiper at Deopham|
Wednesday, 26 July 2017
On my way home from work I stopped briefly at the muck heap to check for evidence of wader passage. Nothing seen on my immediate arrival, however, at about 1500hrs, some 5 minutes following my arrival, 3 Green Sandpipers alighted in shallow water by the muck heap, seconds later, they flew off again, gaining height and heading off north. I was setting up at the time, I think my movement probably caused the birds to fly.
Many Wood Pigeons dropped in as did a couple of Stock Doves. A hunting Kestrel, Swift, a few Swallows, and the expected Pied Wagtails were present. Linnet and Yellowhammer also passed through.
