Another wet afternoon..

 So another trip to Gayhurst Quarry.
All of Tuesday's Sandpipers had gone, with just the juvenile Little Ringed Plover lingering on Fishing Pit.
Geese have arrived in numbers, with over a hundred Greylags and about 50 Canadas.
 On Reedy Pit one of the young Little Grebes seems to have disappeared and just one Little Egret was there today.
 Motorway Pit is collecting birds with large numbers of Lapwings, Coots, Black-headed Gulls and Mallards. There were a pair of Gadwall, still around a dozen Common Terns and a Kingfisher on the stream.
 A lone Swift flew over and a flock of around 50 Swallows buzzed around the local cow herd.
