  2. Thanks Andy - and a Sanderling is a nice reward :-)

  3. I was there from 12-2pm. It was grim! Couldn't find any waders on Big Otmoor other than Redshank, but I was getting very wet so it wasn't comfortable. I guess they could easily have been hidden, but walked all the way up the grass track to view the back pools.
