Pectoral Sandpiper - Marshside Marsh - 24th July 2007

A nice adult frequented the Marsh from Nel's Hide, but was stupidly elusive (so no photo's :( ) and for the first 45 minutes i was able to see a stretched out wing and a Black Bill! The Bird was sharing a small grassy island with 6 Redshank and a Lapwing, which when flew seemed to wake the Pec up and it finally began to show, for two seconds! until it showed on and off behind a tussock.

Also on site I managed to catch a glimpse of a fly by adult Yellow Legged Gull which could be the bird i've been missing at the Quarry recently.

A nice adult Black Tailed Godwit dropped in to the Marsh and was a nice specimen!Above - Adult Black Tailed Godwit, Marshside Marsh.
