The Flashes, Upton Warren
With England getting bowled out cheaply in the last one day international and only the awful Villa on Sky I decided to head over to the Flashes at Upton Warren for a couple of hours. The previous days Little Gull had moved on (which I called in for) via a awful match at the Hawthorns however start attraction was a juvenile Little Stint. The bird was difficult to locate initially as it was asleep on a small island between two Lapwing however once awake it allowed some nice views to a packed hide.
A single Avocet remained wildfowl included 30 Greylag Geese, Gadwall, 60 Teal, 50 Shoveler, 100+ Mallard and 55 Tufted Duck.
The Flashes is always a great place to see waders at close quarters and I managed to get a couple of nice shots Common & Green Sandpiper and also one of the 19 Curlew.
