juv black tern and first autumn wigeon at arlington this morning.

Sunday, 28 August 2011





slightly amusing, a common sand was on falmer pond and a juv little gull was at the marina this afternoon. just as i came off the arm i noticed a small peep with the naked eye rumaging about in the seaweed on the beach, it really should of been a yank but was a little stint, bugger! probably a personal site tick.
an unexpected find this morning were 2 dotterel (ad and juv) flying south over fields near arlington res.
