These birds were part of an amazing fall of waders from the fog at Maxey pits on 23.12.06. In total there were three Bar-tailed Godwits, two Grey Plovers, 26 Knot, two Redshank, one Dunlin, one Oystercatcher and two Curlews in addition to the usual Golden Plovers and Lapwings. Later in the day, Josh Jones also found a Sanderling there and two Dunlin. Click images for bigger versons.
