6-10-07 Saturday a close encounter of the bird kind

Saturday called in at Woodhorn to check out the pond plenty of Greylag and a few Mallard, Teal, but no waders along the edge even though the level is down ,next stop Cresswell still Tree Sparrows on the path down nothing special on the water but still some Hawkers in the open area, on to Druridge Pools but also not much on here looking to be a very quiet day not even any hawkers on the track up, still determined to find a Common Hawker this year, East Chevington from the main view point picked out a small wader well along the east shore as it worked it’s way along through the legs of Swans and dodging ducks quite determined in it’s attempt to feed it was just that bit to far for my scope was hoping someone would turn up with a zoom just to get a better look but no.

Find the wader, this little fellow was just beyond my scope range at East Chevington,a fearless individual as it walked amongst the duck and swans as it fed along the east shore of the north pool, nobody turned up with a zoom to help me.
