   Fri 5 Dec Pectoral Sandpiper Dowse Lagoon, Sandgate
   Pectoral still here this morning. It is still wary, but, seemed more
   relaxed. Probably because it was hanging around with 8 Sharp-tailed
   Sandpipers. Didn't see the Wood Sandpiper, but, a bloke I met leaving
   when I arrived said they were both here this morning. Photo has been
   cropped a little and I was using the 100x Digital on the Canon SX50HS
   to get the photos. If you want to see the originals and some more
   before and after photos just click on the link below.
