22.04.13. Whimbrel and Curlew, Lordship Marsh

Merlin on No 6 tank, 2 Wheatear and Sedge Warbler also noted there and a Whinchat in the weedy field along Lordship Lane.

Observer: Frank Duff, Mark Payne.

Two Wheatear on the turf field off Brook Furlong Lane, 30 Golden Plover over No5, 100 Common Shelduck and 3 Whimbrel on Lordship Marsh on the west side of the airfield. I have attached a long distance, poor quality, photo indicating the big size difference between Curlew and Whimbrel (a lower case ‘little whimbrel’).
