    The 4 Curlew Sands were still present this morning, one of which is a nice adult moulting from sp to wp, on the meadow. The five Garganey are also still on site, only 1 Blackwit remains, but I counted 10 Ruff although counting was difficult given the mobility of the birds. Also noted were 1...

    An unusual find this morning-a juvenile Siskin near the ponds, cant recall seeing one this early before. Perhaps a wanderer from a local breeding population, Alice Holt maybe?? John.
