It's exactly three months since we saw the first male in full breeding plumage in our garden this year, and here's the end result, our first youngster of the season. It's very grey compared to the adults, especially the downy feathers covering the back. It was being fed by the mother and the contrast between the two when they sat together was quite striking.
Found a dead wading bird.Took it home, parcelled it up, and sent it off to the rubber-faced irritant Phil Cool with a note inside which read: “Is this your Sanderling?”
