Baird`s Sandpiper

This morning I went across to the Exminster Marshes again for another look at the juvenile White-Winged Black Tern and to try and get another shot of it and the bird was still performing well flying up and down the Exeter Canal !
There was also news today of a Baird`s Sandpiper seen on Blackhole Marsh in Seaton so Andy Bond and myself went over to see if it was still there and we arrived to find a hide full of people looking at it ! this bird is one of the American peeps and is just a bit smaller than our Dunlin so the trip was well worth while , also seen on the marsh were 2 Green Sandpiper , 2 Common Sandpiper and a Ruff so in the end a great days birding !!!
