Down the Flash

5th - 6th September

I had a message from Andrew Schofield to say there were two juvenile Little Stints on the flash at Acaster Airfield, so after tea, I headed down there. Sure enough, the tiny migrant waders were picking along the feather-lined edge of the flash with a Dunlin. Class. With wader passage continuing, I headed down there early next morning and to my surprise, found that the stint count had increased to three, along with a Ruff. Later, Andrew located a Whinchat on the 'strip' a rough grassy area running along the runway past the flash. I went back after tea and saw the chat, a good bird for the York area away from the LDV.
