This evening I followed a tip-off and went to check out the wader habitat near Woodwalton Fen NNR, in the very south of the Peterborough area. It was a very pleasant evening and there is plenty of habitat which is potential wader paradise. This evening there were 3 juvenile Ruffs (2 were females aka ‘reeves’), 5 Green Sandpipers and a dozen or so Snipe. Also, there was a Wheatear next to the wader pools and a Hobby and Marsh Harrier added an extra bit of spice to the occasion.
