Waders at Blacktoft Sands.

We had a run down to Blacktoft Sands to see what was around there and were surprised at how many Spotted Redshank were there, at one count we had 24 from one of the hides along with 3 Green Sandpipers and quite a few Ruff and Greenshank with three Marsh Harriers in the air together, although too distant for photos.
It was a beautiful calm day and we had the hides to ourselves.
