There was a newly minted redshank juvenile on the Crossroads pool this evening. Spotted plumage, dull bill and orange legs. It looked like it has just dropped down at its first stop after heading south from wherever it was born in the north or west of Scotland this year. Perhaps it was one of the ones I saw in Shetland a couple of weeks ago. It was with 5 dunlin. All indicative of the constant changeover at this exciting pool at the moment. What will be there tomorrow?
