I took a walk the other day in and around Macclesfield Forest, taking in some areas that I know on a good day can have good birds. I'd had a decent few hours, but nothing spectacular was turning up and to be honest it was a little quiet. I changed my route home so that I could check one of the reservoirs where I'd had a Redstart just the other week. I've kept checking this particular reservoir recently for Common Sandpiper that I've had in previous years. Nothing so far this year, but as I was checking the shore line I spotted a Grey Wagtail and right behind that was my Common Sandpiper. I was so pleased. The sun was out and he just wandered straight past me to allow me to take some great close up shots.
