Thursday 10th October

The first Long-billed Dowitcher for the Warren was discovered associating with Oystercatcher on the afternoon's rising tide. It was soon flushed by a Merlin but was eventually relocated in front of the hide and occasionally feeding on the Golf Course. The hide should be accessible along the beach throughout the tide cycle tomorrow, there is no access to the Golf Course.
