Broad Billed Sandpiper

 So there i was sat at home just about to walk the patch when i noticed the message of a Broad Billed Sandpiper, and of all places Iken again, the exact same spot the Kentish plover was. Again i umed and ared whether to go and thought sod it, 2 great birds just 12k from home. Got on site to see there was actually another path closer to the birds on the shore, wish i knew about this before, the Kentish would have been closer and probably photographable. Anyway turned up on site to a few birders there and the flock being mobile no one had it. Didn't take me long to find it however and eventually some good scope views if always brief as there were flighty. Other birds of note, Spotted Redshank again, 300 Dunlin, Ringed plover, few more Knot with one it summer plum, Bar tailed godwits again and a Peregrine.

2 Mega Waders in as many days, its noce to be able to twitch local.
