Common Sandpiper: After a disappointing few hours looking up in to some pine trees at Martin Mere I decided to head back over to Warrington as I had to pick Dawn up so headed down to Sankey as last time I saw a pair of Kingfisher.
No Kingfisher this time but I did spot this Common Sand. I am often surprised by the movement of birds, for instance last week there were no Common Sands around here but in the space of a few days they turn up everywhere locally.
