A wet day saw Sue and I start day 4 of our trip to the West Country at Davidstow Airfield looking for a Buff-Breasted Sandpiper which has been present for a couple of days. We found a number of Ringed Plover and lots of Meadow Pipits, but not the Sandpiper.

Our next stop was at Crowdy Reservoir, where a Northern Wheatear and a Grey Wagtail were on the dam.

We stopped at Wadebridge. On the river Camel, we found a Little Egret, a Lapwing and about 30 Common Redshanks.

Our final stop was further up the estuary at Rock. The tide was low and the sandbanks exposed but apart from an Oystercatcher, a Raven, some Cormorants and Gulls there was little to see
