Pectoral Sandpiper

 A trip out today with Sue up to Swineham Gravel Pits in Dorset to look for 2 Pectoral Sandpiper and after getting lost a few times lol , we managed to find the pits but they were right down the end of a private road so we had to park up and then walk quite a long distance .

On arrival at the pits we found out that there was only one bird there and we could only get distant views of it , still better than nothing . Also added to the day list were 3 Cetti`s Warbler and a Cattle Egret
