Pectoral Sandpipers on Skokholm, Pembs

 In complete contrast to last year, when I spent some time on Skokholm involved in the work parties and the Island was very dry, this year the ponds were in a much healthier state. Water was found in North, South and Winter Ponds and they also offered some very inviting muddy shores. A long staying Pectoral Sandpiper was joined by a second (both shown in the photo below, long stayer at the front) and a 3rd bird (above) arrived the day after the 2 birds had left.
