Baird's Sandpiper

I spend all last weekend on North Ron doing solid birding and find... not much. I take the dog for a walk with the girls during a day I'd barely touched the bins and find a Baird's Sand on The Links beach.

I very nearly blew it as I glanced at the bird initially and almost passed it off as a Dunlin, then it flew and called, ah, that's not a Dunlin.

I spend a fair amount of time checking this beach so it was well exciting to find such a cracking little bird.
