Patch birding .. Southsea seafront pt. 1

Headed to Southsea Castle to check on the purps (Calidris maritama), as numbers have been reported on the up over the last week, counted eight (thirteen were reported yesterday).

The ringed sanderling (Calidris alba) B6WWWW was also present, and I took a few record shots to pass onto the Farlington Ringing Group. 2 Rock pipits (Anthus pertrosus) were very mobile, although one came within range whilst I quietly sat watching/photographing the sanderling.
