Black Hole Marsh/Stafford Marsh

A few pics to add some colour to the page. Yesterday's Sanderling wasn't present on Black Hole Marsh when I checked early this morning. Quite a few Dunlin (pic) and Ringed Plover about though. 1 Greenshank, 10+ Green Sandpiper and a few Common Sand. Present and showing well this afternoon was a single Wood Sand (pic) and I finally caught up with the juv Cuckoo (pic, scarce here). Not a bad day!
