The last week or so...
But unfortunately not close enough for some I've been told...some arsehole ventured onto the pier rocks trying for closer shots!!!
Boldon flats has been a massive success this year with the rain we've had which has topped this field up nicely at times. This and the cattle on here at this time of year have created ideal wader habitat at times. Last Sunday seen a first for me here after dropping in around tea time, 3 Wood Sandpipers together and one was calling,something else Ive never heard before! this also had a couple of lads here searching for the culprit making the call until nailed down.
Four Whimbrel with one Barwit passed over heading south yesterday together, which took me by surprise and the camera was'nt out! This evening 4 Knots landed briefly on Sandhaven before heading north. Bonus of a single Wheatear (male) this evening also on Sandhaven rocks.
