Radford Pill - wintering common sandpiper

Top end of Radford Pill this morning - a good assemblage of the usual wildfowl and waders, plus a common sandpiper - the second time I've seen one in this area this winter (the first was just downstream on the Carew River, on 12 December). I ran the first one past Bob H as I hadn't seen a wintering common sand before - this is normally the spot for a green sandpiper, of which there has been no sign this winter.
