Here's a record shot of the adult Stilt Sandpiper at Cresswell Pond this afternoon in the wind and rain. It showed distantly yesterday, but much better today in the fields north of the pond. The Sandpiper and the Pratincole have made it a pretty good few days for me recently! 2 Spoonbills, 2 Yellow Wagtails and a Whimbrel were also at the pond.
Note: When I put the photo into blogger it was somehow saturated. The bird doesn't look as blue in the flesh as in the photo!
