Common Sandpiper

There was little of note yesterday on PBP and the shorelines. Oystercatchers numbered fifteen ...ten sheltering at the harbour wall the others on the exposed rock with a multitude of gulls.
Walking back along the harbour end river edge stalking a Cormorant..two birds flew past and landed some way upstream. The photograph showed a Grey Wagtail (my first for Par but not the Baywatch site) and a Common Sandpiper which was patch tick number seventy one.


  1. I love the Common Sandpiper, it moves about so elegantly.

  2. Hello Bob.

    This one flew past and landed far too far away upstream to get a good photograph.
