More Waders

A quick scoot out to Davidstow airfield on Saturday evening and found the Buff Brested Sandpiper easily enough .Got pretty close and took a few shots, spoilt with these super birds here ,expecting to see at least one each autumn, but still one of my favorites.

Semipalmated Sandpiper at Drift.
On Sunday I spent  most of the day at Drift resevior and eventually got excellent views of the Semipalmated Sandpiper as it fed along the shoreline with Dunlin & a Curlew Sandpiper and had brief views of the Lesser Yellowlegs but too far for any photos. The waders just keep coming ,and I've just seen that there is a White Rumped Sandpiper at Davidstow but I and the current Mrs Davey are off to Derbyshire for the week and I'm not too sure how understanding she will be if I want to dissapear in the morning and delay the journey.Perhaps it will stay for a week ,but I doubt it. Oh well must'nt grumble.
