Ruff / Reeve Hemnant / Lindum Wetlands off Kianawah Rd
Depending on whom I spoke to about the bird there seems to be some conjecture as to whether this is the Ruff or the Reeve. It is certainly quite a bit larger than the Sharpies . Waders not being my best subject will it for others more knowledgeable to decide
