Drift Reservoir

Common Sandpiper
Juvenile Ruff
Green Sandpiper
Catch up birding yesterday and today, yesterday evening and this evening I went to Drift Dam to catchup with the wader fest there. The water levels are low exposing mud banks creating great habitat. I was lucky enough to have some great views in front of the hide to night, last night was the same.  Knot,Ruff, Green Sandpiper Common Sandpiper, Ringed Plover and Wheatear was seen tonight and last night it included the Wood Sandpiper,

Blogger is acting weird, all the images in this upload was linked  together. The first image is of a Rosy Footman Moth, The second  a Wheatear taken at Porthgwarra and the third shows how low the water level is at Drift reservoir with a Common Sandpiper on a tree stump that would normally be submerged.
