Urgent Appeal for a Scope and Birder at Ringstone to search for small wader

Swung by Ringstone (7:15am - 8:30am) on my way into work to see if the Pinkies were still there and was it worth it my while with....

9 Pinkies mainly in top field
4 Golden Plover
1 Grey Plover
1 Snipe
1 UWO (unidentified wading object) this is seriously worth a proper look down a scope, if it's the same bird DJS had then its been present for 2 days, the jiz of the bird suggests its not a Dunlin small head down most of the time similar to Sanderling, only again colouration doesn't look right for Sanderling. The Lapwings keep harassing it so shouldn't take too long to find. I do hope someone can get up there and spend sometime searching for this bird the site has had Temminck's Stint in the past!!

In the Res Keepers Garden a single Willow Warbler.

Lots of Mipits moving though and several Swallows.

Also present Large flock of Canada Geese and Lapwing plus 1 GC Grebe, 2 Cormorant, c10 BH Gull and a single Mallard.
