Eachkamish, North Uist

There was no sign of the Pectoral Sandpipers in the Eachkamish area this morning but a Buff-breasted Sandpiper landed briefly near the track leading from the saltings to the seaward side. All the waders today were very flighty and the Buff-breast was no exception but stayed long enough to get the attached record shot. Four Ruffs and a Lapland Bunting were also seen.
