A grand evening for a stroll down to Shite Lane. Nothing much doing in the bushes but did pick up ringed plover for the year on the beach. Back at the house, my local informant informed me of a flock of whimbrel heading south along Long Strand, containing a smaller wader - 5 minutes later there it was, booting over - knot (95). A tricky one to get at wader-deprived Galley! But why are all the waders heading south?
