This is a Wood Sandpiper, I've only managed to see them very long distances away. A very shy bird. I was so Very lucky yesterday 3 of them were with 2 common and 5 Green Sandpipers. It was good to see the 3 very similar varieties together and to compare the colours/sizes/characte​ristics.

The 2nd photo was taken 100+ metres away is heavily cropped. But a good record shot. I was surprised to see on the RSPB web site that there are only 11-25 pairs in the UK.

I am very privileged. :-)

Nice little tally of waders you had there. Yes, Wood Sands are a rare breeding bird in the UK, but we always get a sprinkling of birds from further east passing through on autumn migration in August through to October.

Aha, that explains a lot. Good place, Slimbridge! It's many a year since I've been there though.

They are everywhere all of a sudden!

Spotted 5 in 3 days in an area I've seen 0 in the past 6 years... That or I'm getting better at spotting things?
