A brief Green Sand times two

Shibdon Pond - 1 Green Sandpiper (briefly), 1 Kingfisher, 1 male Gadwall, a Sparrowhawk flew over carrying prey and a group of 7 GreyLag over. 3 broods of Canada Goose and 1 of Mute Swan. 13 Common Tern attempting to nest despite the attention of Lesser Black-backed Gulls and Magpies. No sign of the 2nd summer Mediterranean Gull that has called in here the last two days.
Lamesley Water Meadows - 7 adult and 2 fledged Redshank
Bradley Hall Pond - Presumably the same bird from Shibdon, 1 Green Sandpiper
