Northam Burrows

An excellant afternoon today- the Buff Breasted Sandpiper flew back onto the saltmarsh from the north at 2.40pm after it had been missing for over 2 hours, viewed from about 150 yards from the end of the road, opposite the old tip. The Grey Phalarope still feeding on the mud at close range near the 2nd speed ramp beyond the wooden hut and a Lapland Bunting showing very well on the nearside of the saltmarsh, about 200 yards from the far end of the road. Also 12-15 Wheatears and a White Wagtail present.
