Semipalmated Sandpiper, Hayle 22.08.07 – Update

We have had a response from Julian Hough of New Haven, Conneticut, USA stating that the photos of the Semi P published earlier HERE on Cornwall Birding, do indeed show a moulting adult of this species. Julian goes on to say, “Basically grey-white appearance with mottled breast band, nice supercilium and darkish earcoverts and bill shape and length all fit perfectly.”

Our thanks go to Julian for his clarification on this bird, a species he has much experience with in the States.
