Its that time of year. Shortly after writing the last post I went to back to West Hartford with LMcD to check for the Little Ringed Plover. No sign on the main pool but instead I spotted a stunning breeding plumage Wood Sandpiper well camouflaged on the near shore. It soon moved into the open water and began feeding. At least two Wheatear were in the ploughed field behind the football pitch at East Hartford on the way back.
Also I forgot that I heard a Yaffling Green Woodpecker on Beacon Lane this mornign and a pair of Curlew were displaying in the fields behind the farm.
