  • Hi,

    Green sandpiper.

    Rob

  • ooo Are you sure, they are quite rare are they not ?

  • Not rare. Quite common, esp Spring and Autumn when they're passing through.

  • Thanks Robbo, never seen them in Northern England before

  • Judi,  In the Cotswold Water Park one of the most commonly reported birds is the Green Sandpiper, not because it is the commonest it just seems to like to draw attention to itself.

    Bob,  Just so you are not too jealous next time you are in the FoD there is a dipper nesting at Parkend normally quite accessible.

  • Bob, You are right, I was being greedy LOL

    and BobP thanks for the info

    and Robbo of course for getting it first - thank you

  • Bob, Try 50 yards down stream towards Whitecroft where there is a bridge over the river and from you can see up and down stream.
