Baird's Sandpiper ??????
Its well past mid night and Ive had a few too many drinks but is this a Baird's Sandpiper. Me and DF found it at Whiteholme tonight in fading light. Im being very cautious, me and MH had one rejected in 1990 by BBRC. Sorry about poor quality of video shots. The primarie projections look very long a good sign for Bairds and White Rumped, only it didn't have a white rump. If people go tomorrow please don't flush it but try for some photos.
