Kenilworth scores another weekend of waders
With the water level still favourable for wading birds in the first large lily pond by the Visitors Centre, Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is continuing to host a variety of shorebirds: Semipalmated Plover (4), Least Sandpiper (16+), Solitary Sandpiper (1), Spotted Sandpiper (2+). Rising tide seems to be the best time to visit.
This Semipalmtaed Plover had a real tug of war with its dinner!!
And then over in Kenilworth Park, hiding in the wet grass, was this very bedraggled male Bobolink.
With 6 females for company. As they flew from one patch of wet grass to another, they would give their distinctive "bink" flight call.
