19th July 2009, Sunday

Between the showers

Sunday 19th July 09. I decided not to stay at Pett, and headed off to the A.R.C pit at Dung, and I’m glad I did ! with a good selection of waders to be seen, the best of which was, good views of a Pectoral Sand, which was the first I’ve personally seen for many years. Other waders of note Curlew Sand, Green Sand, Dunlin.L.R.Plover, Ring Plover. Back at Pett Pools l was hoping to see a change in the bird life ?, but to no avail. There are still a dozen or so Avocets and 90/100 Curlew actually on the pool its self. The only other bird of note was a good but quick fleeting view of a Peregrine Falcon, flying low over the pools. Here’s hoping for more movement to come soon, good bird watching Pete.
