Yes.  Well done Ash.  I wouldn't have found it but Steve Wallace (with Christine in support) picked up 2 sandpipers in the midday shimmer on the west side.  As with previous visits of this species it was feeding with a sharpie enabling easy comparison.  From most angles the contrasting dark vest of the pectoral is evident.  It is also slightly larger than the sharpie with a  less rusty crown.  Almost unphotographable with the distance and shimmer, but below gives the idea.
