Semi-palmated Sandpiper, Black Hole Marsh

Given the nice weather, I ventured to Black Hole Marsh after work. There were a lot of people there and a lot of buzzing about a possible Semi-palmated Sandpiper. There was confusion about whether it was a Semi-p Sandpiper or a Little Stint due to their very similar appearance. Although I think it's now more or less been confirmed as being a semi-p. Here are a couple of pics. The bird was VERY distant (a hundred metres plus most of the time) so I've cropped them in a bit. Please excuse the inevitable picture quality degradation!
