Curlew Sandpipers at Dickleburgh Moor, 29 August 2020

A wet and miserable Bank Holiday Saturday was livened up somewhat by finding 3 juv Curlew Sandpipers at Dickleburgh Moor before the rain set in this morning. They were even reasonably close in from the carpark enabling me to get a couple of phone-scoped record shots. Ben the warden was most excited when he turned up shortly after I'd found them!

Also around the pools were a record count of 14 Snipe, 2 Black-tailed Godwits, 2 Greenshank, 2 Ruff, 2 Green Sandpipers, 4 Common Sandpipers, 3 Dunlin, 3 Ringed Plovers, 1 Little Ringed Plover and 200+ Lapwings. Just 2 Yellow Wagtails were seen and a single juv Great Crested Grebe.
