With the rain forecast to stop late afternoon, I tried again but, for some reason, decided to have a quick look at Lockwood first where I met Paul McCook who was making an infrequent visit. As we chatted walking up towards the north end, he casually mentioned that he had a Common and Green Sandpiper from the hide on the island on East Warwick.....and a Turnstone. I didn't take much persuading to turn round and join him to see if it was still there. It was, feeding ferociously on the side facing the hide fortunately so we had some comfortable seats. While Paul knew Turnstone was unusual, he did not know how difficult it is to catch up with on the reservoirs. According to Lol and the Prof, Turnstone is perhaps not even annual which explains why it was my first since 1986. Nice one Paul, and went some way to making up for the reservoirs apparently being a migrant-free zone this weekend. Fortunately Valerie Stapleton came along and took some pics for us.
