Distant Pectoral Sandpiper
Whilst I was on the reserve Pam and Pete found a Pectoral Sandpiper which always kept its distance like the Temminck's Stint they found, hopefully their next find will be in front of Firth on the close pools. Also on Burrowes, a Wood Sandpiper, a Little Stint, 4+ Common Sandpiper, a Black-tailed Godwit and a Bar-tailed Godwit which flew through of note.
The ARC was very quiet  though a Great White Egret was notable there.
