Slow start to autumn wader passage
Waders seem to be thin on the ground in west Cornwall and as far as I know, there are no nearctic waders reported this weekend. That will probably change when hurricane Irene tracks further north up the east coast of America this week. For the time being, today I saw one Curlew Sandpiper and a handful of Knot at Hayle, two Spotted Redshank, one Wood Sandpiper, a few Dunlin and Ringed Plover at Stithians Reservvoir and a six Sanderling on Marazion beach.
