Willen Sands

Not exactly a holiday resort, but two of the birds present this lunchtime.
First of all a Common SANDpiper that was strutting down the side of the island and a SANDerling that was resting on one of the Tern Rafts. The latter bird was presumably the one found by Rob H the night before, but as they don't usually linger overnight maybe not.
The seven Terns nesting on the raft didn't seem bothered by it's presence and it seemed quite settled. A Hobby flew around the lake, the two Oystercatchers were again on the spit and a couple of Little Egrets were in the trees on the island
