Little (Ringed) Improvements

I did the patch for a longer period of time today. The highlight was this juvenile Little Ringed Plover on the new slurry pools; definitely my latest ever at BLGP and possibly a latest for the Peterborough recording area (waiting to be confirmed):

There were also singles of both Common and Green Sandpipers there, as well as a Snipe. Haven't given up hope of a Pec there this autumn but it seems unlikely given that I'll be in the Azores for two weeks from Saturday. Also today, a new singing Cetti's Warbler on the ARC Pit, as well as these beasts:

It's very good to have so many back in September but alas there was no token yank wader amongst them. Not even a measly Dotterel.

Here's to tomorrow.
