Buff-breasted Sandpiper at WWT

Saturday 21st September 2013
Buff-breasted Sandpiper
The BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPER showed well at the Dumbles edge over the high tide in the morning. A good range of other birds included Dunlins, Ringed Plovers, two Curlew Sandpipers, four Little Stints, a Golden Plover, a Bar-tailed Godwit, two Common Terns, Yellow Wagtails with the cattle, and last but not least a COMMON SEAL, my first in the county.

Nice work James!
Also at Slimbridge, the wild 2nd yr Common Crane was in a field to the east of Van de Bovenkamp hide, the female Ruddy Shelduck was with collection birds again in the Asia Pen, and at Zeiss Hide a Spotted Redshank, two Greenshanks and ten Ruff.
