Still 2 Ruff

Lamesley Water Meadows - Still 2 Ruff present


  1. There was a wader on lamesley flash pool today around the size of a lapwing, medium beak, white underside, red/browny chest, the white underside kind of tapered up to the throat like a stripe, long legs, and kinda darker brown towards top of head. couldnt identify it 100percent as my bins are only 8x40. wondering if anyone else has been there lately/today and seen it

  2. Yes i was at the flash pool today, the only waders on the flash pool and water meadows were 2 ruff, snipe, curlews and lapwings when i was there.

  3. Richard,
    someone else went down and checked but could only see Ruff. I've posted one of Paul's pictures of one of them taken earlier.
