Amwell LITTLE STINTS present for a second day, WOOD SAND briefly at Tyttenhanger and first COMMON REDSTARTS of autumn

First thing this morning Dave Bilcock discovered this DUNLIN on Startop's End Reservoir (Tring) - my first of the year in the Recording Area...

With the water levels dropping at Tring in recent weeks, we have seen a fair few waders appearing with an adult PECTORAL SANDPIPER, 3 Greenshank, at least 1 Black-tailed Godwit, up to 9 Green Sandpipers and several Common Sandpipers. More will follow in the next few weeks..

Over at AMWELL, Barry Reed discovered 2 juvenile LITTLE STINTS yesterday, both being present today, as well as an adult TURNSTONE, while Steve Blake had a WOOD SANDPIPER very briefly at Tyttenhanger GP

On the passerine front and following 2 in the Bishop's Stortford area, Dan Forder discovered a male COMMON REDSTART this evening in the hedgerow that borders Nettleden Road in Crossways Farm Horse Paddocks. I watched the bird until dusk...
