Common Sand at Gorleston Quay
On Friday 4th May, at 12.30pm, driving along Gorleston Quay taking the short cut route to Great Yarmouth Library I spied from the car an interesting looking wader facing left, I stopped and checked it out, it was a fine Common Sandpiper. It was perched on a vertical piece of wood, opposite the Gorleston Sea Cadets hut, just 30 feet away sadly I didn't have my camera with me. The bird wasn't there when I drove back at 4.30pm.
