Fairly normal Sunday, spent the morning around Dad's and after dinner I went to Rye Meads.
At Draper Hide there were 7 Green Sandpipers. One looked significantly bigger than the rest and I tried to make it a Greenshank but it wasn't, a chap tried to make another a Wood Sandpiper (it was a juvenile Green Sandpiper).
Good news is that a pair of Kingfishers were seen breeding yesterday and are said to be showing well, not to me they weren't.
and for Turquis this is a "McIntyre"
