Beer Head & Black Hole Marsh

On Beer Head this afternoon were 3 Wheatears and a Willow Warbler. Word is, there were 3 Pied Flycatchers there yesterday morning.

I am delighted to grab this opportunity to post the first two 'Wheatear on a post' photos of the autumn...

At Black Hole Marsh a bit later were 3 Little Ringed Plovers (2 present already; another flew in around 17:45), 1 Wood Sandpiper, 5+ Common Sandpipers, 1 Green Sandpiper and 8 Black-tailed Godwits. Also, a fly-over Hobby.

 All 3 LRPs, typically distant and over-cropped
