Pec on the patch...

Dave Helliar found this smart juvenile Pectoral Sandpiper on his patch near Chard on Sunday morning. Unfortunately it didn't hang around after being flushed by a sparrowhawk intent on chasing a couple of nearby Green Sandpipers. This is a first for the patch and a great local find:

Hopefully it will resurface again somewhere else - last seen heading south in the general direction of Axemouth.
