Grey-tailed Tattler at Burghead (Alan Tate http://www.aabirdpix.com/)
Having been found the day before I made the long drive north accompanied by RJF & JWK. Plenty of birders were present at dawn overlooking a cold, grey and pebble-strewn beach devoid of any waders. Checking the nearby wave platform also drew a blank so we set off along the nearby beach checking the rock pools and there it was! A few waves to the crowd and everyone present were soon watching this very obliging second for Britain and the Western Palearctic. JFC was abroad at the time, but after his return, we accompanied Pete Neatherway on another enjoyable successful visit.
