Northern Wheatear
Juvenile Temmincks Stint
Temmincks Stints
juvenile Curlew Sandpiper

Beautiful day, beautiful weather and some birds. Spent two-and-a-half hour on Herdla, mainly to concentrate on waders. Reports of the last weeks suggested quite a lot of birds on the move. Also today: some 40 Dunlin, 40 Ringed Plover, a group of Golden Plover with Ruff, Red Knot and Bar-tailed Godwit between them. Further seven or eight Little Stints, two noisy Temmincks Stints and a few Curlew Sandpiper. Two Northern Wheatears, many White Wagtails and Meadow Pipits. Too early for the special songbirds.
