📖 Diary Update #59

🍂 ⛅18C Friday 29th September 2017 ~ I began the day at Brandon Marsh meeting up with Alan Boddington for a catch-up. We'd spent a short time in the East Marsh hide, noting (5) Swallows, (22) Snipe, Little Egret, a Kingfisher performing an amazing hover right in front of the hide and counting (60+) Wigeon, when a text from Bob Hazell over at Draycote Water initiated a change of plan!

One of two Little Stints at Draycote Water today!
Two Little Stints were a little too good to miss, so off we went! Both birds were showing very well along Farborough Bank when we arrived, along with (2) Dunlin and (2) Ringed Plover, other highlights during our stay.
