Days Lock, Dorchester-on-Thames, Oxon. 27th August 2007.

Back over to Days lock today to get my first year sighting of Ruff on the wader scrape next to the River Thames.
Walking by the lock a Little Egret flew towards the river bank before turning and flying off over the fields and out of sight.A good number of waders were present today feeding around the scrape including 3 Ruff which were my first of the year, a Ringed Plover, 2 Dunlin, Black-tailed Godwit, a juvenile Spotted Redshank, 2 Juvenile Wood Sandpipers and a Common Sandpiper.Good numbers of Yellow Wagtail were also present.

Added To My Year List.

171. Ruff
