Buff-breasted sandpiper-Dale airfield

Buff-breasted sandpiper found by Dave A and Jason M around 8.15am, at the crossroads SM 79134 06459. Despite a couple of walkers passing close by it appears quite tame and would wander over to the verge. Also c15 Ringed plover and a Dunlin keeping it company. Jason picked up a 'shank' as it flew over giving a staccato tuew call. A Golden Plover was up by the main gate. c12 Wheatear and 3 Snipe.
