White-rumped Sandpiper – Druridge Pools

Home White-rumped Sandpiper – Druridge Pools

On the 13th August 2017…..

Following my last visit to Druridge Pools, I had intended to do some sea watching this weekend however, I was drawn back to the Budge. Screen hide, in the hopes of catching up with a White-rumped Sandpiper.

After only about 15 mins, I was rewarded with amazing views. The birds behaviour, size and shape, helped me find it easily. Great bird, deffo one of my favourite this year.

This was my third British record (1st East Chevington and 2nd Amble in 2016).
