Weobley Triangle

A great late afternoon was enjoyed at Weobley Saltmarsh (NPR, ND). Buff-breasted Sandpiper was located first, followed by White-rumped Sandpiper, Curlew Sandpiper and two Little Stints among dozens of Dunlin and Ringed Plovers. We had just about given up on the two Pectoral Sandpipers seen earlier today, when they flushed from almost under our feet and subsequently showed well. A few digiscoped photos were taken as the light diminished, but I'm sure better will follow. A Green Sandpiper flew in to the edge of the marsh as we left. Well worth the stomp!
