Buckenham waders

I have been to Buckenham three times in the past three days. The pools are looking pretty good at the moment with water and muddy edges at a good ratio for a whole host of waders.
Nothing particularly special seen but
1 wood sand on fri and this morning
4 Green sands on fri and up to 6 this morning
2 Common sands this morning
2 Dunlin on Fri
1 Greenshank present both days
2 Whimbrel on the mill pool this morning
3 Little Ringed Plover

Also present are small family parties of Yellow wags, today I saw an adult with at least 3 fledged young (I winder if they are actually from Buckenham?).
Birds of prey have also featured well on all visits with 5+hobby's, 3 Buzzards, 2 Buzzard sp's, Marsh Harriers, Kestrels and Sparrowhawks all out and about.
Brown Hawkers seem to be featuring heavily along the riverbank too, one seems to take off every 10 paces!

Next week I want to report that I have found something like a stilt sand or similar, we'll see!
