Sanderling at Maxey

The end of May is a traditional time for bumping into late spring waders, such as Sanderling. There have been a lot around the country today, and Will Bowell and I fancied our chances in the drizzle (and rain) at Maxey Pits, this afternoon. We found this lovely spring-plumaged bird with six Dunlin and a Ringed Plover. Number 160 for my PBC year list.
