Whixall Floods - Wood Sandpiper

One for the record! Record shots that is.... Finally got chance to check out the flood and this very early Wood Sandpiper was still present! Found by Reevesy on the 18th! In the scheme of whixall floods, it was showing very well, always distant but no obstructions...

Not a lot else here or at Wood Lane, the only other highlight was a large gathering of Sand Martins (c 120) over the Mere at Ellesmere.

Venus Pool - Redwing

They wont be here much longer but this obliging Redwing was determined to put on a bit of a show before departing!

Once he had got out of the longer grass that is!

 In fact molehills seemed to be the perfect vantage point in the quest for worms?

Yet, I didn't see him catch a single one!

We will just have to settle for poses then....

'Twas a lovely day with Spring in the air, wonder what's happening on the pool?
