A great bird for Jan 1st Dave, well found.
Waders are acting strange with a Greenshank 2 Decembers ago and a Redshank last January, both at Fly Flatts, and now this.!

Nice one there Dave. We have had one there before in recent years I think and I'm not sure if it was you or maybe Steve Loveric. ? I have been looking on the previous blogs to find the record but not done so yet !
