A couple of awful didgys of one of the three Wood Sandpipers on the Winter Flood at Trimley Marshes today and a couple of a Green Hairstreak which posed for visitors along the path to the same hide. Good to see so many people attending the Reserve Open Day.

Always nice to find a patch 'rare'. Temmincks Stint on the Winter Flood at Trimley. Other waders around high tide included 7 Barwits, 3 Whimbrel, 2 of Knot, Greenshank and Turnstone, 32 Dunlin and single LRP. 4 Black Terns on the River Orwell were good value.

Does anybody know a email address I can send information on colour ringed Greater Flamingos I saw at Calpe, Spain this week as the link on the website on CRbirding seems to be down.

Going stir crazy because of the storms. Decided to walk round salt pan and get wet. Was rewarded by this superb adult Slender-billed Gull.

I'm at Calpe just North of Benidorm at the moment. Rain and storms last three days but clearing up today.
