Green Sandpipers,Snipe and Rock Sparrow

It's still very warm but there are still a few wet fields for passage waders to take a migration stopover.   Some of them were near to the Bandiat today where nine green sandpipers and five snipe were paddling in the shallows.
But the only waders at Fougère seemed to be lapwings. The great white egret was still present though along with nine grey herons and a pair of mallard.
Perhaps the most interesting bird today was not a wader but a rock sparrow taking a bath in a puddle at Les Vielles Vaures.
A black redstart was singing in my garden today.
