Marsh Sandpiper at Wolfes Road

Postby Adam C » Fri May 01, 2020 6:22 pm

Hi all. After finishing a job in Lincoln today I thought I'd pop out to Wolfes road to see if there was anything still about.

My first trip back to the Lake since Lockdown so great to see this Marsh Sandpiper and a good Hybrid Black Stilt present.

Nothing else in terms of waders other than approx 10 Bandies and 38 Pied Stilt.
