Another day out with Andy and Ken saw us heading for Blackhole Marsh in Devon as they both wanted to see the Little Stint and it showed a lot better today than when I saw it on Sunday . Also seen was a Ruff , 6 Common Sandpiper and a few Common Sandpiper .
We then headed towards Wiltshire and our first stop was at Stonehenge where we saw a Corn Bunting and a Northern Wheatear , we then carried out on to Salisbury Plain and the first bird we saw was a Red Kite and in the end we had lost count of how many these birds we saw , we then carried on and came across a flock of 14 Great Bustard and we know that these are not wild birds but it was still great to see them .
We then went to Winterbourne Downs to look for Stone Curlew and we arrived to find the spot covered with long grass and though that we had no chance of seeing them , but after a bit of a search we managed to see a few of them , also seen was a Brown Hairstreak Butterfly . We then headed for home after a good days birding .
