I had planned to check waders off Horseshoe but with persistent rain I opted for the cover of Covenham instead. Wader highlights were 5 Common Sandpipers & 2 Green Sandpipers. 2 Common Terns had been forced down by the weather but soon departed when there was a break in the rain. 2 adult Med Gulls were logged as the gulls stopped en route to their evening roosts on the coast. Plenty of Swifts & hirundines were also feeding low over the reservoir. The only passerine of note was a solitary Yellow Wagtail.
