Pectoral sandpiper...

A tweet this afternoon alerted everyone that James McCarthy had found a pec sand on Black Hole Marsh at Seaton and half an hour later I was on my way to take a look for it. It was quite distant but I managed to obtain a little grainy footage of it as it moved between the small islands:


Pec sand, Black Hole Marsh: R. Harris
Pec sand, Black Hole Marsh: R. Harris
Juv Med gull: R. Harris
It vanished later in the evening after a sparrowhawk swooped across BHM and was not seen again during the evening. Hopefully it hasn't gone far and will stay around for a few days. Others birds of note were 3 meds and a YL Gull.
