Wood Sandpiper – Felbrigg Park

Thanks to an early morning text from Perry, I managed to get down to the water meadow at Felbrigg Park in time to see the Wood Sandpiper. A Felbrigg ‘tick’ for me and only the third record I can find since 1972. I was leading an NENBC mid-week walk at 9.00 so hurried back to gather the group of nearly twenty people and ‘march’ them down to the sluice to see if we could relocate it. As we approached a Lapwing was chasing the Wood Sandpiper around the water meadow. Fortunately it settled down again and gave good views to everyone. It was still in practically the same spot when we walked back an hour later. Nice bird!
