Our irregular visiting Marsh Sandpiper is back at the Tip Lagoon (north end) spotted amongst the pied stilts this afternoon.

Brilliant! I saw it last Tuesday and couldn't quite ID it for sure. This is confirmation. It was feeding pretty furiously.

Present again at lunchtime today in a howling North-Easter. Distant record shot attached. Cheers, Sean.
