Pectoral Sandpiper still present - distant (record shots attached) First picked out in flight as it flew in with the Ringed Plover about 08.40. Took several flights with the RP and last seen in flight at 09.10, lost behind trees as the viewing conditions were very narrow. There are decent photographs and video on the Wild Littleborough Facebook page from yesterday. Ringed Plover 1 Yellow Wagtail 1 Common Gull 1
