Even more Sandpipers.

Just when I thought it safe to relax back in the hammock and have a well earned snooze in the late afternoon sun my phone alerted me to a text! It was off David King informing me there were two Pectoral Sandpipers at Inner Marsh Farm. Within two minutes I was on my way  - two Pecs together is a notable occurence in Cheshire.

As expected the car park and hide were full but the Pec's were still present frequenting the island to the right of the hide in the same spot where last weeks Curlew Sandpiper frequented so record shots only.

Other waders seen in my brief visit included Ruff, Green Sandpiper, Greenshank. Black-tailed Godwit and Lapwing.
