Bird number 181 for my PBC year list and the first I have seen in the 'Deepings area', and the first multiple record I have had of the sepecies locally since 2003! These were particularly pleasing after missing an early morning Sarnie (foudn by Hugh Wright) in the spring at exactly the same site, by minutes. The 'wader pit' continues its amazing record of drawing in good birds throughout the year. While I was watching the terns, a first-winter Mediterranean Gull popped in for a bathe. And the next evening, a flock of 23 Black-tailed Godwits were present, as well as an adult Med Gull.
