From here I took the opportunity to visit Cantley, where an excellent variety of waders had been reported over the last few days. It was very enjoyable wandering around, initially with the place to myself and then with some friendly fellow bloggers! I tried to convince myself that I had seen the Pectoral Sandpiper, but was rightly put on the right track! However, at least 7 Curlew Sandpiper and 7 Little Stint were seen (all juv), along with a count of 63 Ruff in one group - which didn't include all the ones flying around and feeding on the other lagoon! A single juv Spotted Redshank was noted, with 4 Greenshank, 5 Green, 4 Common and 1 Wood Sandpiper! A young Water Rail had me going when it disappeared into the reeds, but emerged in full view to allay any 'fears'!
