Report Ann Graham.

Hi, This afternoon on Par beach, in the dry seaweed at the back of the 
beach were 4 Ringed Plovers, 6Turnstone and a Baird's Sandpiper. 
Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me. 

Thank you Ann. The Baird's Sandpiper will be of interest to the regulars.


  1. When was this bird present? Text says "this afternoon", but it looks like it was posted at 10:52?

  2. What identified it as a Baird's Sandpiper then ? And as stated above whats the "this afternoon" got to do with it ...

  3. The bird was seen on monday afternoon at about 3pm, alone on the seaweed. I went back on tuesday and wednesday with my camera but couldn't find it. I identified it as a Baird's because of its tiny size, its long wing feathers extending way past its rump and its long beak. Its beak was shorter than a Dunlins and not downcurved.
