Farmoor: 19th September AM

This morning I was planning to try again at Wytham Woods for the recently reported Willow Emerald Damselfly (a first for the county reported by Steve Brooks last week), but on checking the Oxon Birding Log it mentioned a Little Stint at Farmoor. As these diminutive waders are one of my favourites, I quickly changed my plans.

As with most of its species, this one was very confiding and happily roosting, preening and feeding on the causeway in the company of a Dunlin. There was also the Ruff a little further on.
