8th September 2013

At Kings Gap, Hoylake, good numbers of waders again today with over 1000 Dunlin, 300 Sanderling, 9 Bar tailed Godwit, 29 Knot and the first Juvenile Little Stint of the autumn. Curlew Sandpipers have now increased to at least 18. 1 Gannet was seen flying east.

A small flock of 15 Sandwich Tern were at the high tide roost. As the opportunity of photographing Curlew Sands arrives but once a year below are a small selection including a ringed bird.
