It's becoming the norm every year to observe Dotterel and Buff-breasted Sandpiper feeding together on St Mary's
Spent the afternoon with Simon Bucknall http://shorebirder-waderworld.blogspot.co.uk/ and after seeing a few Chiffs and a single Yellow Wagtail at Lower Moors, we made our way in the thick fog to the airfield to have a look at the Buffy and Dotterel that have been present up there for the last few days.

"And may your god go with you"
