Pretty pleased to find a Wood Sandpiper on the scrapes yesterday afternoon. A bit of rain is always a good thing! Only my second Wood Sand on the patch, the last being on the same scrape on the much later date of 9th September 2009. Typically, as with most decent waders on the patch it didn't stick around for long before flying off never to be seen again. Managed a quick digiscoped record for posterity!

And here is a better shot of a Wood Sandpiper I took on Lesvos!
