Yank waders

A trip to St Agnes was cut short with news of American Golden Plover and Buff-breasted Sandpiper at the airport back on St Mary's. Luckily they waited for me to get the boat back and were showing well, although a little distant, with 3 Golden Plover.

This morning a Great Spotted Woodpecker (rare here!) was on the Garrison and the Melodious Warbler showed briefly on the way to the boat. Nothing new on St Agnes, with the Lesser Yellowlegs and Curlew Sandpiper showing well, but no show from the Vireos.

Three Yank waders in a day can't be bad!
