Pectoral Sandpiper.Kelling Water Meadow.Norfolk Oct 2012.

 Sarah and I spent a couple of nights away in Norfolk, we moved around the north coast line throughout the two days there and planned on some general birding. Thanks to the 'oh so accurate' weather reports it did not go to plan, we were soaked at Titchwell and blown off our feet at Salthouse. Still we ventured out, but did not connect with the Yellow browed warbler at Wells. The cloud descended and the showers continued so we decided to head to Kelling water meadow to try for the Pectoral Sandpiper there. And although looking into the sun (when it showed) the wader showed very well. I grabbed some shots as the sun started to set, it was moving amongst the clumps of mud and grasses feeding well. So despite the weather this little wader definitely brightened our day.
