Little surprise

Spent an accumulative couple of hours at the Houb yesterday going through the waders. 8 Whimbrel and a dozen or so Dunlin with the usual Turnstone, Ringed Plover and Redshank. Still no joy with the hoped for Knot & Sanderling, but an unexpectedly brief Little Stint more than made up for their absence and was a welcome patch tick.

A check of the Houb this evening produced a Sanderling roosting with the Turnstones but no sign of the Little Stint.
