Another Wood sand (not a Lesser 'legs)

The adrenalin was going for a bit on Sunday afternoon when a wader with long yellow legs and lacking a supercilium with a straight bill was on the Shunan. Then it woke up and turned into another Wood Sandpiper, I've a touch of Autumn Fever methinks.

Seawatching for a bit on Saturday from the whalebone at Birsay produced a very nice Euro Stormie, a couple of Manx and nearly 5k Fulmar in 90 mins, impressive.
