Successful Night

A look at Lamesley after work in the hope that the afternoon showers might have dropped a wader. Success with a Wood Sandpiper quickly seen and a Common Sandpiper feeding nearby.

Wood Sandpiper
After some food it was up to Slaley. Several Woodcock were roding in the half light and a Buzzard moved along the moor edge. 3 Cuckoo were still calling up until it was dark. 2-3 Nightjar started churring and 2 gave brief, but very close views as they flew overhead. It quietened down as it started spitting with rain, but I will be back on a better night.



  1. You need to change the name of your blog to reservoir and beyond as it looks you have relocated also ;) lol

    1. And you need to change yours to the Pied Piper, as everybody seems to be following you around. :-)
