Adult Buff-breasted Sandpiper on Marazion Beach

An adult Buff-breasted Sandpiper was found on Friday feeding on the seaweed on the beach.  This record follows a first year bird seen in the same location the previous year.  The location is unusual for Buff-breasted Sandpiper and it is quite conceivable that this is the same returning bird, as it passes through on its southerly migration.  This is also the first adult that I have seen.
