One good wader follows another

Highlight of today was a Curlew Sandpiper coming in to summer plumage mingling with a rapidly feeding and likely rapidly leaving Dunlin flock. Curlew Sand is a patch tick, no photo tho it was distant and the heavens opened. I couldn't find it half an hour later but it might have been present later this evening, distance, poor light and rain not helping.

Also today a record four singing Sedgies around The Shunan, it seems like an especially good year for these.
