29/06/2014 Carr Lane Pools, Hale

Wood Sandpiper: My first visit to Carr Lane Pools after a couple of hours working at Wigg Island.

After parking up I started my search from the gap in the hedgerow near the speed bump and give way for about half an hour.

It was from here I could see a large flock of Black Tailed Godwit a couple of ringed plover and several smart looking Snipe.

I then moved on up the road to the next viewing point where I eventually pinned down the wood sand feeding in one of the pools just past the fence.
A cracking bird to pick up after a Sunday spent at work.
