Headed south this morning after a sit in Shibdon hide, which was very quiet. Arrived at Nosterfield in Yorkshire and the Broad-billed Sandpiper was seen almost immediately. Good, but very distant views as the bird fed in and out of low vegetation. Also here were a few Avocet with chicks.

A call from Paul D that he had just found a Grey-headed Wagtail at Lamesley had me heading back north. I arrived to find the bird had not been seen for a while, but the Wood Sandpiper was showing well. After a few minutes I picked up the wagtail feeding at the water's edge. Great scope views, but again too distant for photos.

Also here a Red Admiral was a year tick.
