Least Sandpiper

Splendid summer-plumaged Least Sandpiper at Old Moor yesterday evening (26th); originally identified as a Temminck's but, as can be seen from the photos, a bit better-looking than that. Showed well from the Wader Hide pretty much constantly, and is a long-awaited new British/WP bird for me!

Old Moor is only 14 miles from home in Sheffield but the roads/traffic make this place just a bit too far away to have as a regular patch - shame, lots of birds there this evening.
