Stanpit and Keyhaven quick report

Here is a quick report: On Wednesday me and me Aunt visited Stanpit marshes and keyhaven for the day...

Stanpit marshes: Absolutely loads of waders in big numbers, such as Curlew, Whimbrel, Redshank, Dunlin, ( NEW for the YR list ) Lapwing and oystercatcher. Sandwich terns were dotted around, either flying or resting on land and The reeds held a lot of Reed warblers and Sedge warblers.

Keyhaven: Lots of Black tailed Godwits were around, along with Little ringed plovers and Oystercatchers. The Passerines included Greenfinch, Linnet, Wheatear, Stonechat and possibly more that I cant remember ;) The only Terns around were Common terns. Hirundines included Swallow and House martin, There were even more Reed and Sedge warblers than stanpit with literally millions of them everywhere!

Photos to follow if I can find some good ones....
