Pectoral Sandpiper movement in Cornwall

The last couple weeks has seen a decent movement of Pec's through the county with no less than seven birds seen already in the period.  The early Autumn migrant at Maer Lake was presumably a failed breeding bird. 
(all sightings updated to 9th Sept)
1 Maer Lake, 8th and 9th July.
1 Treraven Meadow, Wadebridge, ad. 21st and 22nd Aug.
1 Walmsley Sanctuary, 26th Aug
3 Sibleyback Lake, 3rd Sept
1 Stithians Lake, Golden Lion end, juv. 5th Sept.
2 Upper Tamar Lake, 7-9th Sept
1 Gannel Estuary, 9th Sept
In addition, recent sightings of Lesser Yellowlegs and Buff-breasted Sandpiper bodes well for the Autumn ahead...
