A beautiful sunny day and its quite warm too. A check of patch this morning didn't surprise, 2 Chiffchaff, Willow and Blackcap. But the day was saved thanks to a call from Dr Marshall? Whilst counting Purple Sandpipers at the Houb a Wood Sandpiper flew in, thankfully it hung around just long enough before it flew off high to the south. One bird i wasn't expecting on patch, so a welcome bonus. Sorry about the absolutely crap picture, probably struggle in a mystery bird competition.
