Garganey and Sand Martins

A wander around the patch this morning produced little of note apart from a single Garganey amongst several hundred Lesser Whislting Duck and an increase in the number of Sand Martins with at least 200 present, a significant increase on the usual ten or twenty usually recorded and perhaps indication of some passage through the site. Also noted were two Black and a single Bhraminy Kite,  6 Common and three Black-capped Kingfisher, 18 Blue-tailed Bee-eater, two Green-billed Malkoha, 150 Black-winged Stilts, 19 Wood Sandpipers, 7 Little-ringed Plovers, 5 Common Sandpipers, 8 Whiskered Terns, 2 Siberian Rubythroats, 8 Red-throated, 5 Richard's and 4 Paddyfield Pipits.
