Hudsonian Whimbrel still here!

15th August 2007 - sunny spells NW3/4/5
Just when it was thought to have moved on the Hudsonian Whimbrel reappeared on the salt marsh opposite Rape Haw on the rising tide before flying low north to its usual haunt off Snab Point.
Morning observations produced all the usual suspects with small numbers of Gannet, Manx Shearwater, Common Scoter and Sandwich Tern recorded.
Grounded Migrants
A small movement produced totals of 20 Pied Wagtail, 17 Wheatear, 14 Willow Warbler, 3 Whitethroat and 3 Sedge Warbler.
Wildfowl and Waders
Additional wader species included Spotted Redshank, Ruff, Greenshank, Whimbrel and Black-tailed Godwit.
