Pectoral Sandpiper at last light

Last light over Startops

Just a quick post with a short digiscoped video clip of yesterday’s Pectoral Sandpiper at Startops End Reservoir, Tring. It apparently turned up in the afternoon but I was listening to the wrong grapevine and didn’t hear about it. Discovered the news by accident at 19:30 and was relieved to find it was still settled and feeding when I arrived just after 20:00. Less than half an hour in, the bird was startled into flight by an intrusion on the far side, unfortunately, and that was the last I saw of it.
