Broad Billed Sandpiper


I went over to Spurn at the weekend in the hope of a curlew sandpiper and anything else that might be on offer.Beacon Ponds and Spurn near the warren were very productive.
I managed to see the CS but also got a superb bonus of a broad billed sandpiper.It was feeding with the waders as the tide flooded and ver flighty, however it did stay put long enough for these record shots.
There were plenty of birds about including summer plumaged sandpipers, knot and bar-tailed godwit.
Also there were a couple of 'Tundra' ringed plovers.
The wind spoilt any chance of a decent photograph, but the quality of birds on offer more than made up.
