Knot a stilt

It looks as though the stilt sandpiper has relocated back to Cresswell Pond... for the time being. Here it is in all of it's glory - taken by Ian Fisher

The Budge fields were pretty much bereft of waders tonight with the wader-highlights coming elsewhere. A common sand was in front of the Oddie hide, 13 oystercatcher flew overhead and on the shore, four knot flew south and 12 sanderling pottered about.

Passage migrants seem to be on the move, there was much willowchiff activity in the bushes and blackcaps were calling.

The only butterflies showing on the bunds tonight were peacock, meadow brown and a comma.


146 knot
