Llanrhidian Marsh SS 4772 9427 (MHi & BS)

Mark photographing the Pec
Pectoral Sandpiper, White-rumped Sandpiper and Curlew Sandpiper feeding together on the edge of the marsh this morning. Chris Brewer got poor views of two birds here a couple of days ago and speculated about the possibility of there being Pec and White-rumped, so deserves credit for the discovery. Also in the creek behind a Great White Egret. Later Mark also had a Little Stint and a few Dunlin. Quite a morning!
