A white-rumped sandpiper was an excellent find at Seaforth today. Viewing through the fence and into the sun the views were not good. It was quite distant but once you had got onto it, the sandpiper stood out from the dunlins with its pale belly and elongated shape and spotted flanks. Most of the dunlins still sporting thier black bellies.
