|Juv Buff breasted Sandpiper, taken with Nikon D500, 500mm F4 ISO 12800 !|
|This is one of my favourite birds and is always a delight to photograph. I took these from the car window.|
|This is the seventh Buff breast record this Autumn in Cornwall. It is probably now the commonest Nearctic wader after Pectoral Sandpiper in Cornwall.|

This first winter Whiskered Tern was originally found on Tuesday 13th as a Black Tern but re identified from photo's as a Whiskered. It showed well this morning in low light as it fed near the dam end of the res. This is the 11th record for Cornwall.

Two images of Buff-breasted Sandpiper at Marazion beach; the upper shot was taken last week and the lower image was taken on 12th August last year in exactly the same location. This is only the second time that I have seen this species on Marazion beach.
