Common Sandpipers flock to Thornton!

A flock of 8 Common Sanpipers were photographed by Dave Wright at Thornton on Saturday.It is a strange time of year to have so many. Too late for breeding birds going north and too early for birds returning. Perhaps they are failed breeders, that have been affected by the changing levels of our northern rivers.
