BMW.............Wednesday wanderings.    10th Sept.     4-7pm

Spent a fabulous few hours at Burton mere wetlands RSPB reserve this afternoon.

Glorious sunshine and really nice light over at the Inner marsh hide. Hide was a bit busy when I arrived but quietened down soon after.

Fantastic array of waders that include 1 curlew sandpiper, 2 little stint, 10 or more spotted redshank, 1 pectoral sandpiper, lots of ruff,  1 red necked phalarope, black tailed godwit, plenty of snipe and at least 7 greenshank ( seen from the screen on the walk over ), 1 sparrowhawk.

Only bird I failed to see was the cattle egret which had been seen earlier.                  Sean.
