Dawlish Warren

The Buff-Breasted Sandpiper found this morning, still present this evening at high tide commuting between the edge of the bight and the golf course. Luckily it was a lowish high tide and the poor weather meaning no disturbance, meant most of the waders remained in the bight just before the hide, on the edge of the saltmarsh. It is loosely associating with Ringed Plover, and went across to the golf course several times where it showed very well. Also 5 Curlew Sand present.
