Stilt Sandpiper Via Sandbanks, Purbeck & a Dip!

An Early start with a short cut accross the mouth of Poole Harbour and I was in Purbeck, a beautiful part of the world and very thought provoking of several past decades of childhood holidays visiting the likes of Durlston CP, Dancing Ledge, Studland Heath, Brownsea Island and Corfe, however today wasn't so, not the weather anyway, grey, wet, windy and miserable, also no sign of yesterday's Two Barred Greenish. 

A couple of claims but nothing concrete, however It was good to see and catch up with Tim from SOG, about the outer Thames & surrounding areas but by 14:30hrs it was time to call it a day and we decided to  retreat together just to get out of the miserable weather conditions if nothing else. 

A sheltered and welcoming hide at Middlebere was the prefect place to dry off, have a fresh brew, and to share some time with a nice juvenile Stilt Sandpiper.
