Poking in pits

I did make comment about "you guys standing by your pits and waiting for waders" while I hit the hills and got the proper birds up there, but hypocritically decided to try Grovebury for two easier needed Gulls on Sunday. This proved to be worthwhile with SFYT two full summer plumage Black-tailed Godwits dropping in and three Yellow-legged Gulls on the boom, one of which is illustrated here with colour rings. A probable Marsh harrier got away though as a bird coming towards me almost out of the sun was lost from the scope view and frustratingly could not be refound, presumably dropped down somewhere. Will be back in the pits of course for Med and potential waders, but rather be finding Wryneck in a few weeks time...
