Spotted Redshank at Kidwelly Quay

Spotted Redshank with Greenshanks

No sign of the Long-billed Dowitcher on either side of the Railway Bridge at Kidwelly Quay late afternoon today, although it was reported present this morning. However, the visit was made worthwhile when a Spotted Redshank appeared with a small group of Greenshank. Other notable counts included Goldeneye(1f), Little Grebe(3), Black-tailed Godwit(1), Greenshank(8), Redshank(c150) and Snipe(5)

I've attached a bit of video. The view of the Spotted Redshank is not great in it but I like the way it shows the Greenshank communicating from different parts of the saltmarsh. The distant birds must be at least 300m away
