This Whimbrel was found a few days ago in the field used as a car-park by the Exotic Pet Refuge of Deeping St James, South Lincolnshire. As it happens, this is also a hedge hop from the east pit of Deeping Lakes, LWT, where the bird would go to bathe and feed on the shore, occasionally. The rest of the time, over the weekend, it was happy to wander around in the grass pull out earthworms.
