I paid another visit to RSPB Frampton Marsh in Lincolnshire this morning. There were huge numbers of waders on the scrapes as it was high tide. At least 300 Ringed Plover; 400 Dunlin; 3 Little Stint (including a moulting adult); 12 Curlew Sandpiper (all juveniles); 8 Greenshank; 12 Spotted Redshank, 1 Sanderling; scattering of Ruff, Avocet, Curlew, numbers of Black-tailed Godwit and Lapwing and a calling Pectoral Sandpiper which we heard only. Also 2 Spoonbill, plenty of Little Egret, adult Whooper Swan, small numbers of Yellow Wagtail and Swallow; 3 Swift and large numbers of Sand Martin and House Martin.
