A single Green Sandpiper was a late record for the region , also 2 weeks ago, at Waulkmill hide (MS). There has been a roving flock (s) of Golden Plover in the area for at least a week now, with a maximum of about 1000 birds counted.
A shame to see the wildfowler's at the Snub today, taking aim at passing wildfowl flying round the corner of the Ythan. Not sure they would have been able to distinguish protected from non-protected species shooting at such a location.
