Semi-p a welcome addition... my county list. Saw a cracking adult Semipalmated Sandpiper at Saltholme RSPB on the causeway today. Brillaint bird! Also in accordance was a Ruff and 1 Temminck's Stint. To add to that on the way down I spotted a bird high in the sky; a large raptor sp of some sort. When we pulled over I was expecting to see a Buzzard but instead was greeted by a cream crown Marsh Harrier. Got back in the car after having seen this brilliant bird and checked my phone, turns out a couple of local lads John Bridges and Dave Johnson had just had the bird fly over Rainton Meadows DWT and head my direction.

Brilliant afternoon out. Hopefully pics to follow......

Until next time, Foghorn out!
