Terek at Covenham

Well its all happening now, I was out after work this afternoon, over the Humber Bridge and on to Covenham Reservoir where a Terek Sandpiper found yesterday evening had been showing well this morning, the bird was a bit nervy, easily spooked and had been chased about a bit this morning apparently but by the time I got there it had got into a routine in the South-east corner and by waiting patiently it eventually came quite close, it was my fourth one but by far the closest I've ever had, a handful of more common Waders were keeping it company but unfortunately the Black Terns that had been present this morning had departed, a passing Osprey was a bonus though, the local Buzzards giving it short shrift.

then it started coming closer

Dunlin and Sanderling

a very bright Redshank
