Essex Semi P

Another great find by local Paul Wood in the shape off a fine juvenile Semipalmated Sandpiper on the mud at the famous East Tilbury, having seen several other good waders here also found by Paul ie White-rumped sand and a couple of Kentish plovers it was great to add semi p to the Essex list and not too far away from London list either!!

Several Little stint and Dunlin were feeding along side the bird so was a good comparison, and a good learning curve having not seen one for a long time now, again well done too Paul for this great find and thanks to Shaunboy for the call.

semi p showing palmitation (lol)
