Why do the good birds always seem to turn up when I don't have the time to go see them?
A Marsh Sandpiper has taken a liking to one of my favourite East Yorkshire sites, Blacktoft Sands, along with a Spoonbill, Spotted Redshank, and Wood Sandpiper. A Spotted Sandpiper has been at Rutland Water for the last few days, both species I've only ever seen once. Both turned up whilst I was away on the Isle of Wight last week, I haven't had the time to see them this weekend and don't have time this week due to my boy's birthday preparations.
How much shall we bet that they both disappear on Friday afternoon??
