Happy Birthday Reg

Took the day off so I could do a bit of birding with Reg as it is his birthday. Sadly we failed to pull it out of the bag at Rush Hills, with neither the Long-toed Stint or Broad-billed Sand giving themselves up. Try again another day. 40 presumed Tundra Ringed Plovers present on the other side of the scrape, plus a Sanderling and three Dunlin. A smart Greenshank was striding about, but nothing rarer.
Went on to Filby and Ormesby Broads to see if any marsh terns had been blown in by the easterly, but alas we had to make do with a first summer Little Gull. Went off piste with success and found a good new vantage point with which to get a better view of the west end of Filby Broad, which should be useful for better views of the Whiskered Tern I am hoping to find later on...(I wish!).
