Before and after work birding
Tuesday 31st August Corton OSW today the Wryneck seen briefly when I was along the north side it flew outside the compound to the weedy area bordering the track running alongside it. It flew west. 2 confiding Whinchat were seen along the eastern fence and in he compound one posed beautifully for the camera. Several rats seen. Evening didn't see the Wryneck but Whinchats, Rats were still present plus female Blackcap and 4 Chiff- Chaffs. Along Lowestoft N Beach a fine juvenile Purple Sandpiper kept itself in the shadows under the seawall & finally Sandwich Tern seen fly onto the groins plus around 20 Common Terns, saw Andrew E too, who kindly pointed out the PS.
