20220803 Greenshank
3 juvs present on Serpentine this morning.
These 2 were IDed by the CBC recorder as Wood Sandpipers??!
Surreal situation  continued as 'the recorder' flushes birds away from the East Bank by flapping about above the horizon...??
Although Wood Sands were about at this time records of 2 juvs need to be scrubbed for the last few days... Normal for Norfolk?
