Little Egret, East Lea (Mark Pearson)

Little Egret, East Lea (Mark Pearson)

A quieter few days in the area, with a Ruff south at the Gap and three Dunlin and two Curlews at East Lea the best of this morning. The last few days have seen a steady but modest trickle of common waders over the sea and on the Brigg (including the first two Purple Sandpipers), with odd skuas and small numbers of Manx Shearwaters also passing by. A Little Egret has frequented the Dams and East Lea intermittently.
