Wood Sandpiper at Grimley (again)

Managed to grab a bonus slot of birding after work on Monday following a tip off from Butterfly Dave that the Wood Sandpiper is well worth a drive over at Grimley. The tip was very much appreciated as the Sandpiper was showing really well and wasn’t fussed by the watching audience of myself, the returning Butterfly Dave & photographer Micah Rose, who it was good to meet for the first time. It was great to see this species so close, the bird was really dainty and it is hard to believe how far the bird had flown on its migration.

Plenty of great views of other species included Swifts that were whistling past our ears, Common terns, Little Ringed Plover, Kingfisher.

A great hour of birding for a Monday night.
