Temminck's Stints

Two temminck's stints on the Budge fields this morning, in true Roppa style, I was still in bed when Dave Elliott found them and called me, was soon down there to see them though...and nice they were too! Also new was wood sandpiper, the pair of garagney were still present along with the greenshank.

Him 'n' Her - garganeys

Spent the rest of the day with John Richardson looking for dipper nests in Upper Coquetdale and the North Tyne. Lots of wheatears and whinchats now in the hills, we didn't get to ring any dippers today but have a few nests staked out, we did ring a brood of meadow pipits though.
