Oystercatcher drops in at Holmethorpe SPs, Surrey ... 19th February 2011


I received a phone call from Gordon Hay saying he had found an OYSTERCATCHER at Mercers West Pit at Holmethorpe SPs during the afternoon.

I soon joined Gordon by the metal gate overlooking the pit and we waited for Johnny 'Badgeman' Allan, Kevin 'Kojak' Guest, Neil 'Factor' Randon and Ian 'Ferruginous' Kehl to join us.
Luckily, the bird was still present when they arrived and we all managed to add it to our local and Surrey year lists.

The light was not great but it was possible to get a few grainy shots.

Waders don't normally hang around long at Holmethorpe but this bird looked fairly settled and, hopefully, it will hang around for tomorrow.


L to R: Neil Randon, Kevin Guest, Johnny Allan, Ian Kehl and Gordon Hay.
