Four Doves

Very little about again today on the 'patch' but four different species of Dove to keep one happy. Namaqua Dove, Laughing Dove, European Turtle Dove and Eurasian Collared Dove. Waders are dropping in number but there were sixteen Black-winged Stilts today up on yesterdays count. Also one Common Greenshank, four Green Sandpiper, eight Wood Sandpiper and a scattering of Little Ringed Plover and Kentish Plover.
