Dominic Davidson found this Long-billed Dowitcher at Kidwelly Quay yesterday evening and it was still present this morning and showing reasonably well while I was there. Like the bird I saw many years ago at the Rhymney River it was associating closely with Redshank and appears to be quite loyal to the area in front of the carpark and down to the railway bridge.
A few record shots of the bird which seems to be pretty far along its moult into 1st winter plumage. Congratulations go to Dom on a very nice fine which I was very pleased to watch this morning. The light is great at this location in the morning and well worth the effort.
