Purple Sandpiper @ Llanbadarn Fynydd

I was very surprised when this little gem appeared in my beam during the early hours of this morning while out looking for Woodcock and Snipe at one of my ringing sites.

Purple Sandpiper



  1. Good record Paul.

  2. How odd! Thank goodness we have strange people who don’t go to bed and wander around all night looking for such !!!

  3. Amazing, Paul. Almost as good as Great Snipe!!

  4. I’m not surprised that you were surprised!!! What a find in the middle of Wales!
    There is a small flock of PS’s at Portishead North Somerset at the present time!
    By the way I have just posted a late comment re your Golden Plover sightings request!
