You are quite right, Rod, it would be a surprise sighting. Very occasionally
one or two, usually injured, Sharp-tailed Sandpipers might be seen in winter
or even over-winter, but as far as I'm aware there is no substantiated
record of a flock. What was the feature that indicated that they were that
species and how did the 'breeding plumage' manifest itself? I suggest you
review the ID and if possible get a second opinion.
