Hello all,

I have received a few more responses to my mystery sandpiper images.

This time most of them are opposed to the idea that it is a Broad-billed
Now the general opinion is that it really is a Curlew Sandpiper (probably juv in
worn plumage).

I will be re-reading all of the comments and making a more detailed comment as
soon as possible.

Unfortunately, the weather has been a bit rough here for the past couple of days
but I will have another look as soon as possible.

I'm enjoying this!

All you people who have recorded Broad-billed Sandpiper (especially in this part
of the world) should be getting a bit worried, I Think, maybe?!
