Hello,
its a 1 cy Pectoral Sandpiper. Please note well demarcated streaked breast, contrasting sharply with white belly. Apart from that it looks like a 1 cy Dunlin and a 1 cy Ruff.
If you see a wader, and you cant decide if its a juvenile Dunlin or a Ruff and it has a unform dark patterned breast, its a Pectoral SP.
Good find, congratulations!

Juvenile pectoral sandpiper. Did you find it?
Hi Butty, I was aware of reports of Pec Sand in Yorkshire, though wasn’t sure exactly where…popped into the reserve as driving passed (never visited before). Viewed through screens in the car park.
