Willet (click to see the larger version)

I went over to Montrose this evening to check the beach for large shorebirds. No Whimbrel or Hudsonian Godwits but there were 3 juvenile Willets inside the protected area. There were also a few shorebirds in the fluddle just to the west of the protected area, including a bunch of Semipalmated Sandpipers, a few Least Sandpipers, a lone Pectoral Sandpiper and a couple or 3 Semipalmated Plovers.
