Green Sandpiper still on car park pond at Murton, 1441 hrs April 30th 2018. Beware there's also a Common Sandpiper around, both seen close together but couldn't get them both in a photo! Also Shelducks, Gadwall, Shoveler, Teal, Wigeon, Mallard, Tufted, Lapwing, Redshank, Sedge Warbler, Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler singing. No Sand Martins see at all anywhere on the reserve.

Still 15 Purple Sandpipers on the breakwater at Inchcape Park, Arbroath at high tide.
