Baird's Sandpiper at Upton Warren

Sunday 11th September 2016
Juvenile Baird's Sandpiper, Upton Warren, Worcs.
Sunday morning saw an impromptu trip to Upton Warren with Andy and Mark. Following early news that a BAIRD'S SANDPIPER was still present from yesterday, the straightforward 45 minute trip up the M5 and an obliging bird meant that it wasn't long before we had successfully twitched this smart Yankee wader. Other interest included a Green Sandpiper, a Common Sandpiper and a Ruff.
We were looking into the sun, but occasionally it did wander in front of a darker background
Not complaining about the light though
It was a gloriously sunny morning

Almost always in view - I do like a cooperative rarity
