Waders ahoy!

On my patch in recent weeks there have been some fantastic birds dropping in. Spring, I find, is the best time of the year for seeing birds you don't normally see on your doorstep. The quite impressive list includes, Redshank, Dunlin, Curlew, Oystercatcher, Common Sandpiper, (I did see it eventually) Little Grebe, Wheatear and Little Ringed Plover. The LRPs have dropped in and moved on again quite quickly but are a real joy to see when you catch them.

Curlews overhead.

The new green keeper on the golf course is doing a sterling job with the drainage.

A Stockport rarity. Little Ringed Plover

Northern Wheatear have been in good numbers this year at Woodford
