Brockholes NR LWT - 31st July 2013

moulting adult Sanderling
above and below - Mink

very worn White-letter Hairstreak
a very soggy Pied Wagtail

Another day down on the patch today with forecast regular showers. The first shower of the day produced a cracking adult Sanderling on the island of No1. This was present from 09:55 to at least 11:10, but wasn't present by 12:00. In addition there were 2 juvenile Little Ringed Plover and a Green Sandpiper that flew in during a shower.
In addition to these sightings, I found a juvenile Mediterranean Gull, plus a Mink that was very obliging indeed and several insects in the form of White-letter Hairstreak and several new species of hoverfly.
