And when I say wet, it was very wet. So that meant I had to check out Gayhurst Quarry.
Not really a lot to show for getting soaked though. Two Common Sandpipers were the only waders on Fishing Pit. It's funny how the only waders that Common Sands don't seem to get on with are.. Common Sands, as these two were having a right old set too. A flock of Gulls on here included Black-headed and both types of Lesser-black backs.
Motorway Pit was better, with the first two Snipe of the autumn, 4 Little Grebe, 2 Little Egret, Kingfisher and 31 Lapwing.
I'm pleased to report the young Swans and Great-crested Grebes are still doing well.
