The first two shots are of a Pectoral Sandpiper, a North American vagrant, the shots are distant and classed as record shots. Colin was of the opinion that two where there but I can only claim one sighting. We also had two Knot, a number of snipe and Black Tail Godwit along with one Gadwall and Shoveler duck.
