Common Sandpiper finally seen at Mutford Lock, Oulton Broad
On Sunday 14th January, still nursing a very sore mouth, I had to ration my time out so time only to venture out late morning to Mutford Lock, good to see Neville L here and initially we saw not a lot, but the fine Common Sandpiper flew in to the bank by the bridge walking our end and showed reasonably close. Little Grebe also seen plus a Grey Wagtail heard flying over. At Leathes Ham 8 Pintail (4 males, 4 females), Gadwall and Shovelor seen around 10 of each. 2 Goldcrests in the bushes.
