Little Marlow GP is my local birding patch in South Bucks. This is a record of the birds seen during my regular visits. It includes record photos of many of my sightings, but I am not a photographer, so do not expect good quality images!

21st Wader Species
20th May - a quick pre-work visit prior to 9am found little of note. During the morning, a number of local Turnstone reports came through, including 3 flying through QMR and a single at Tring, so I thought it was worth having a further check at lunchtime. As I arrived, I could see a wader on the point of the spit and a quick check revealed not a Turnstone, but 2 Sanderling, a nice summer plumaged bird and one in transition. So another good wader species for the patch year list, my 17th and the site's 21st - not bad for a single lake!
Some record shots here:
A LRP and 3 Shelduck were the supporting cast, whilst high teens of Common Terns are still frequenting the spit and not the rafts! Maybe Turnstone will appear tomorrow!
