After finding a Turnstone at Shawell A5 Lagoons on July 22nd, it was a real surprise to see another one there last night. Both were males, but it would seem unlikely that just one bird is involved. I've been to the site quite a few times during the 11 days that separate the sightings without seeing a Turnstone. The site is small, so it couldn't really go missing. Unless news that it has been hiding at the nearby Stanford Res comes to light, I will treat it that two birds were involved.

Four newly arrived Turnstones were at Rutland Water today.

The scrape that has developed this year will hopefully attract more waders. Hopefully a Pectoral Sandpiper, as that would be a great one to be the 200th species for the SW Leics list.
