Back to the patch

It was dead for wildlife at Pyes Hall today
Can anyone put a name to this? If so, they seriously need to get out more.

Back on the patch today after a 2 month absence. Late June to mid-August is generally quiet at Donna Nook/Pyes, but from mid-August the 1st Pied Flys & Redstarts of the autumn will start moving through, with the chance of a rarity in amongst them (Red-backed Shrike, Greenish & Icterine Warblers etc). Still early, I didn't expect much today. 2 Marsh Harriers were over Grainthorpe Marsh, 4 Greenshank were down the haven at Pyes along with 2 Common Sands. 2+ Whimbrel, 2 Yellow Wags & a Kingfisher also noted. There were signs of some passerine migration with 2 Willow Warblers calling in the bushes.
Went to Paradise to check for waders and found 5 Common Sands there with a further 10 down Saltfleet Haven. Greenshank & 3 Whimbrel also seen at the haven.
