Wood Sandpiper finally poses for the camera!

A few new birds in today with 5 adult Ringed Plover, a few extra Common Sandpipers and a single Green Sandpiper but otherwise no significant change - the Marsh Harrier and Wood Sandpiper continue to stay here. Someone wrote Spotted Redshank on one of the boards but between us the locals were around for most of the day and none of us saw it (as far as I know). No time/location/age/moult info was recorded - it would be great if there is one here somewhere so let's see if one of us can pick it up...

The Wood Sandpiper was showing fantastically well in the evening, although the light was challenging. Such a lovely wader:
