Curlew Sandpiper

Curlew Sandpiper with Dunlin in the background

This Curlew Sandpiper was on the island in the centre of the bridge in Wadebridge this afternoon.

It was amongst a handfull of Dunlin and some Black Tailed Godwit. There were also about 100 Redshank present but not a Spotted one amongst them!

Thanks to Will Delacour for alerting me.... and a warning to anyone birding here is to pay the parking charges on Commissioners Quay because they employ agents that can't wait to ticket you or clamp you if you should be a bit late back or don't park between the lines etc. (Fortunately not talking thro' experience other than watching others!).
