The low water levels at Dernford Reservoir had been attracting a number of good quality waders and these pictures are from two visits on the 16th and 19th September. The main attraction was a Pectoral Sandpiper.
At least 8 Ringed Plover were also present.
A couple of Dunlin were also present. This shows them with the Pectoral Sandpiper, giving a good comparison.
A Little Stint was also present, but distant. I did manage a couple of record shots.
To complete the wader round up, one Green Sandpiper and two Common Sandpipers put in an appearance as did this distant Curlew Sandpiper.
The most unexpected visitor was a drake Common Scoter which with a bit of patience allowed some reasonable shots.
For such a small place it attracts some really good birds!
