Woody and a Sandwich: Soar Valley sightings 24th August 2009.

Hi all, here is a list of sightings I saw yesterday down the Soar Valley.
Wanlip Meadows LRWT: Most of the sightings were on the scrape (except for the Hobby!)
1 Juvenile Wood Sandpiper
1 Greenshank
4 Green Sandpipers
6+ Snipe
1 Hobby
Watermead CP North:
1 Juvenile Sandwich Tern seen on King Lear's Lake between 16.10 and 17.45pm when it flew off low east.
8 Common Terns (including 3 juveniles) over King's Lear's Lake.

So looking at the sightings I had a pretty good afternoon down the valley finding a Wood Sand on the scrape and then putting the icing on the cake by the sighting of the Juv Sandwich Tern flying around King Lear's Lake!! Some times local patch working does have it rewards.
