Another trip to Draycote Water.

The weatherman had said that Thursday would be the best day of the week for sunshine so I went to Draycote water again to get some more shots of the Pectoral Sandpiper but this time in the sunshine.When I got to Toft that morning surprise surprise it was very dull ,windy and damn cold.

The Pectoral Sandpiper was showing well though which was surprising because there was some lawn mowing going on close by,a couple of fishermen were very close to it's feeding beach and of course a few birders were by the wall looking down on it.It did not seemed to be phased at all by any of this but just keeps on feeding.It must be very hungry!!!!

The rocky area just below the wall all along the Farborough bank was very lively with Meadow Pipits,Grey and Yellow Wagtails and Wheatears all showing well.Also on site but missed by me included a Bar-tailed Godwit,a Ruff and a Rock Pipit.
