Greater Sandplover Kazakhstan May 2017

30 March, 2017

A walk around the golf course and then back along west beach was very quiet par a couple of Wheatear, 3 Blackcap, singing Chiffchaffs, singles of Cetti's Warbler, Reed Bunting and Grey Partridge. A flock of about 60 Sanderling flew west along with 4 Med Gull.

This afternoon at Climping form midday, an hour watching the sea was a total waste of time.
