Had the builders in this morning, so my first opportunity for any birding was lunchtime.  Seeing that there were a few Sanderlings in other counties, I had a plan.  A quick look at the washout pit, and the G&M Growers pits at Broom, before heading to Derek Whites Eggs pit.

Unfortunately I'd just finished checking the washout when a Bashford called - he'd got a Sanderling on Gypsy Lane West!  Damn.  Beaten to the goodies.

It was a lovely little bird however, mostly in winter plumage, with the rusty flecks just coming through around the primaries.  I wonder if it'll still be there tonight?
