I had more leaflets to deliver today, but had a prolonged stay at Tophill Low Nature Reserve. South marsh East was the place to be with eventually 3 Green Sandpipers, a Wood Sandpiper, but the star was the Great White Egret. It remained at the back of the site, but came into the open a few times. Also present: 3 female/juvenile Goosanders, 9 Common Terns, at least 20 Swifts through south, 2 Wigeon, a Little Ringed Plover, and the obligatory male adult Kingfisher.
