And about time too. This one is pretty straightforward.
I went to the river yesterday. When I was there I saw a Common Sandpiper fly across the river and land on the foreshore. It then flew back across the river (all shivery winged and that) and I didn’t see it again.
And that’s how it happens. Year tick. 63 for the year.
This picture shows you the area that the Sandpiper was in. Just imagine that the gull in the picture is a small wader. And that it is bobbing about. And that will be approximately what I saw.
