I was on hide duties today for the 2nd day running and enjoyed the nice prolonged views of the waders being pushed up by the ever rising tide. Numbers were low in the catch today but was more varied including the Marsh Sandpiper and Greenshank's as per the photos uploaded here.
I have had Greenshank in the hand before but this was the first time I had managed to see Marsh Sandpiper in the hand and these really do appear small when in the hand.
The sky turned dark above with the threat of more heavy rain so after the catch and all equipment was put away it was time to retreat back to base where it managed to remain dry and another stunning sunset brought a close to the day. "No Australian Hobby this evening"
