The weather on the afternoon of 22nd of September was low cloud and driving rain, but it did produce a large fall of waders at Foxcote Reservoir with twenty Greenshank and eighteen Redshank dropping in.  This is one of the most significant falls of waders in the county.  The above photos show several of the Greenshank plus some Redshank and a Teal.
