Hi All, the Short-billed Dowitcher which was seen at Price saltfields
before Christmas is still there. It was seen this morning by John Cox and
Colin Rogers and is still in breeding plumage. As before it is associating
with Red and Great Knots.
As before, a good high tide is required to bring the bird in. The other
good news is that the Ruff is still at Penrice Saltfields having been seen
twice more on Tuesday and this morning.

  There's nothing quite like the feeling of seeing a new bird is there?
