We only had a couple of days after the start of WQ before we headed for Thailand, so we decided to make the most of them by visiting two of our favourite places, Titchwell RSPB reserve on a murky day in Norfolk, always good for waders and the next day Slimbridge WWT on a sunny day in Gloucestershire where of course the spoonies are being so tenderly cared for.

After the two days we had a WQ list of 18, on it were two Nearctic waders, the White-rumped Sandpiper that we saw at Cley NNT in Norfolk and the Long-billed Dowitcher that we saw at Slimbridge.
