plumaged male Ruffs there.
I spent around two hours in Nel's hide, with the highlight being a Little Stint that was a little
camera shy. There were at least 15 Ruffs around and i saw some aggressive behaviour
between the males. One Ruff had a pure white head, neck and belly, again a little camera shy!
Beside the regular birds, there was 6 Wheatears at the sand plant. I called in at Hesketh
out marsh on the way home and of note was: Short-Eared Owl and Merlin there.
