Pectoral Sandpiper (Drift Reservoir)

Kate and I were excited to find this Juvenile Pectoral Sandpiper roosting on rocks in front of the hide. It gave superb views while we were there.
Pectoral Sandpipers are annual vagrants to Cornwall, normally during the autumn months, September being the optimum period. Over the years Drift Reservoir in West Cornwall boasts the Lions share of records, This juvenile is the first record so far this autumn.
